On January 3, Tesla China released its annual sales report on its official account.
In the fourth quarter of 2021, Tesla produced more than 305,000 vehicles worldwide and delivered more than 308,000 vehicles,More than 936,000 vehicles were delivered in 2021.
However, recently, the Incident of Tesla Starlink satellite has also become a hot topic. Some netizens posted the "Starlink satellite" under Tesla's official account.
A netizen commented on his official weibo account:"Distinguished Tesla owners, thank you for helping SpaceX's Starlink program by bringing Tesla satellites close to the Chinese space station twice, threatening the lives of Chinese astronauts."
In addition, another netizen replied on other platforms: "You are welcome, contributed two cars, I inadvertently made such a great contribution, so many people thank our owner, very welcome, we are all Chinese, I should, I recommend some friends to buy."
The Starlink satellite launched by the US space Exploration Technology Company (Spacex) has twice approached the Chinese space station this year, the China Aerospace Development Agency said on December 27.
For safety reasons, the space station complex performed preventive collision avoidance (" emergency collision avoidance ") on Starlink satellites on July 1 and October 21, respectively.
It is worth noting that experts interpret that SpaceX's Starlink satellites, which operate at an altitude of more than 500 kilometers in orbit, generally do not make large maneuvers out of formation.
However, the orbital altitude of the Starlink satellite decreased to about 380 kilometers, which is close to the operating altitude of China's space station. The artificial maneuvering factor is obvious.
