Tesla opens massive new delivery center in China

China is the new Texas—everything’s bigger over there. Tesla’s new delivery center in Beijing is said to be the largest in China, and possibly the world. The 120,000-square-foot building has over 100 spaces for deliveries, and an early photo showed them slap-full of new Model Ys.

The new facility is part of a big buildup of Tesla’s delivery infrastructure in China, as it begins deliveries of a new, cheaper version of Model Y. The Model Y Standard Range (no longer available in the US, alas), starts at ¥276,000 (about $42,500). The new price, enabled by a new government EV incentive, is expected to drive a sales surge for the already-popular Model Y.

The volume of Model Y deliveries is also swelling with orders from outside China. Gigafactory Shanghai is becoming a major export hub for Tesla. Model Ys bound for Europe will presumably be coming from Shanghai until the German Gigafactory comes online.

Tesla China released a video about the opening of the delivery center.
