Tesla’s (NASDAQ: TSLA) sales seemingly improved as car deliveries of China-made vehicles jumps along with the company shares. 

In April, the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, managed to deliver 1,152 vehicles, while for May, the numbers jumped to 32,165 China-made vehicles sold. Tesla’s Shanghai factory reopened on April 19, after the renewed lockdowns in China, and was struggling to get the production back to pre-lockdown levels. 

Considering the backdrop of lockdowns, supply issues, and rising inflation the increase in China-made car deliveries means that the production jumped by over 200%.

Meanwhile, car sales in China are expected to increase by over 10% YoY in June, as the demand suppressed by lockdowns would now be in full swing. Earlier, Tesla claimed that it aims to produce 71,000 vehicles at its Shanghai plant in June, per a memo seen by Reuters.  

Elsewhere, on June 8, the EV manufacturer opened its first physical store in Inner Mongolia, indicating that the company is aiming to have a presence in North China. 

With increased production and delivery, TSLA could be set to dominate the markets in China, but only time will tell how well it does.
