Tesla seeks approval to build long-range Model 3 in China

BEIJING — Tesla is seeking approval from Chinese regulators to offer a new China-made Model 3 variant, according to a government document.

The variant would have a longer driving range, a source familiar with the matter said.

Like the current China-made Model 3, which has a standard driving range of more than 400 kilometers (240 miles), it would be a rear-wheel drive vehicle, the source said, who was not authorized to talk about the matter and declined to be identified.

Tesla, which started delivering cars in December from its $2 billion Shanghai factory, also sells longer-range imported Model 3s with all-wheel drive in China.

The electric-vehicle maker restarted production in Shanghai on Monday after the government ended an extended holiday that had been put in place due to the new coronavirus outbreak.
