Tesla's Beijing Technology Innovation Center Announced During Elon Musk's Visit to China

Tesla boss Elon Musk had previously criticized China’s tough auto rules for foreign businesses

Workers at Tesla's Fremont Factory were reportedly given free Red Bull to stay awake and instructed to walk through a raw sewage spill so that Model 3 production could continue, according to Bloomberg Businessweek.

Shanghai will accelerate efforts to cancel restrictions on foreign investment in the auto manufacturing sector, a government official said on Wednesday, a day after Tesla (TSLA.O) said it would build a wholly owned auto plant in the city.

Musk earlier had stated "Would love to be in India". These doubts, together with lower than expected Model 3 deliveries revealed in Tesla's Q2 2018 delivery and production report, ultimately caused the company's stocks to tumble last week. Tesla has previously denied this claim. "I'm not saying that Panasonic will be the partner, but you'll see someone step in there, and I think those details will be announced in the next one, two, three months".

Tesla probably will make the smaller Model 3 sedan and upcoming Model Y crossover in China, Mr Musk said in November, rather than the pricier Model S or Model X that often sell for more than US$100,000 in the US. Tesla made 2,685 Model 3 vehicles in 2017.


Recently, though, leading manufacturers LG Chem and Samsung SDI have sold more of their product into their domestic market in South Korea, said GTM Research analyst Mitalee Gupta, who studies energy storage supply chains. The government's target is seven million vehicles a year by 2025. China retaliated by imposing an nearly identical tariff, meaning Chinese consumers who want to own a Tesla will have to spend an additional $30,000. Apple, for example, this week sought the arrest of a former engineer accused of self-driving vehicle technology that he was set to provide to a company in China.

At the end of June, Tesla, as well as GM, was said to be very close to hitting the 200,000 USA delivery cap.

The Norwegian Consumer Council stated on July 4 Tesla had climbed to fourth place in the first six months of this year in the list of companies Norwegians complain about the most, up from 24th in 2017. In addition, he said that data on the number of cars produced in the Model 3 regularly overstatement, but in fact, the company produced 44% fewer cars. But Musk has said the company will become profitable in the second half of this year.
