US electric vehicle firm Tesla saw a short drop in sales of its China-made autos last month but an even bigger fall in the number of models it exported from its Shanghai production line.
The American company sold 52,859 China-made vehicles in November, including 21,127 for export, the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) said on Wednesday.
But Tesla, which is making Model 3 sedans and Model Y sport-utility vehicles in Shanghai, sold 54,391 China-made vehicles in October, including 40,666 that were exported.
The CPCA said passenger car sales in November in China totalled 1.85 million, down 12.5% from a year earlier.
