A brand new TeslaModel X has crashed in China, damaging the left-front fender, the bumper, headlight section, and the front suspension. The Model X was hit by a BYD F6 sedan on a crossing on an almost empty road in the city on Xinzheng near Zhengzhou in Henan Province.
The accident marks the first Model X crash in China. It happened around 19:00 on yesterday July 28. We don’t know whether the autopilot was on or not.
A very happy Tesla Model S, Spotted in China on the southern section of the Second Ring Road in Beijing. The good Tes’ was wrapped in an eye killing shiny Pink wrap and further sexed up with darkened rear lights, a very dark rear window, darkened side windows, and matte black alloys. The wrap nearly covered the bumpers, mirrors, and door handles; the holy trinity of a proper wrap.
The very first Tesla Model X has been seen on the road in China, pictured here in the wet in the great and rainy city of Shanghai. This particular car is a 90D, painted in a blue kind of silver and fitted with privacy glass around the rear compartment. The Model X was launched on the Chinese car market in early May and deliveries will start late this month.
The 90D retails for 961,000 yuan, the P90D for 1.15 million yuan, and the China-only Signature Red does a whopping 1.47 million yuan. That translates to $147,000, $176,000, and $225,000 respectively. For comparison, in the U.S. the 95D costs $95,500 and the P90D $115,500.
The enormous difference is caused partly by import taxes, counting for about one third of the price, and partly by healthy entrepreneurship. Chinese car buyers are very eager to pay more to get their hands on a Model X, and Tesla is well aware of that.
The Tesla Model X has been launched on the Chinese car market, with deliveries set to start later this month. There are three variants available: the Model X 90D, the Model X P90D, and the China-only Model X P90D Signature Red edition. The Model X 75D base model is not available in China, but might be added to the lineup later.

The LeSEE electric sedan was one of the hottest cars at the Beijing Auto Show. It is widely described as the “Chinese Tesla killer”, and the company has stated that it has Tesla in its sights. We have heard that one before. So does the LeSEE have what it takes?
The facelifted Tesla Model S had its public debut on the 2016 Beijing Auto Show, fittingly so as China has to become one of Tesla’s largest markets wordwide, one day. The facelifted Model S is available immediately, priced from 735.000 to 1.04 million yuan.
Buyers of a Tesla Model S will get a free license plate in the Chinese city of Tianjin, opening the way for more Tesla sales in one of the largest and richest port cities in China, and also the port of entry for all cars arriving from the United States, including Tesla’s.

The Tesla Model S P85D has been launched on the tumultuous Chinese car market, priced at a hefty 949.500 yuan or $153.957. The launch of the supercar-sedan has been widely anticipated among power-hungry Chinese car buyers; leading to extended delivery times that will undoubtedly please the gray market. When ordered now the vehicle will be delivered in mid-June, or two and a half month later.
