Tesla starts Model 3 delivery in China earlier than expected

[BEIJING] Tesla Inc on Friday said it had started delivering Model 3 cars in China, slightly ahead of schedule.

The US car marker said in a statement that it held a delivery event in Beijing on Friday, which it said "marked a significant milestone for the market". The firm had said in January that Model 3 deliveries in China would begin in March.

The California-based firm has been aiming to accelerate Chinese sales that have been hit hard by the impact of Sino-US trade tensions. It has adjusted prices of its US-made cars in China to make them affordable.
