Tesla Shanghai factory ground breaking

Tesla Said to Be Close to Model 3 Approval for Europe Sales

The Tesla shareholders say the former girlfriend, Canadian singer Claire Elise Boucher, also known as Grimes, may have first-hand knowledge about what Musk was thinking August 7 when he shocked the world with a tweet: "Am considering taking Tesla private at $420".

The founder of Tesla Elon Musk announced on Twitter that on Monday, January 7 in Shanghai starts construction of a plant for the production vehicle.

They also want to subpoena the New York Times, Gizmodo and Business Insider because they interviewed Musk and Banks and "have information bearing on the veracity of Musk's tweet".

Elon Musk's lawyer is hoping to prevent Tesla shareholders from bringing the company CEO's former romantic partner into a lawsuit related to his disastrous tweet about taking Tesla private.

Tesla doesn't report its USA sales on a monthly or quarterly basis like all other major automakers in the market, so it's hard to tell how much ground the company is actually gaining on Mercedes or BMW on American soil. Musk said on his official Twitter account.

We can't wait to see where this latest round of messy drama ends up.

But Tesla has said its Shanghai plant will be "wholly-owned" by the company.

Online ordering for Tesla cars in China has started and the configurator is quoting first deliveries in March 2019.

Monday, January 7, officially launched the construction of the first plant for the production of electric vehicles outside the United States.

A local plant will help Tesla lower prices in the market to compete with a new generation of local rivals including Nio, Byton and XPeng Motors.

"Shanghai Giga production of Model 3/Y will serve greater China region", Musk added in another one. "And the competition is getting more and more fierce". China's southern neighbour has already laid out aggressive electric mobility plans and Tesla has always been in the scheme of things.

Tesla plans to produce its Model 3 and Model Y cars in the initial phase of production at the Shanghai plant, with an annual capacity of 250,000 vehicles.

China is the largest market for electric vehicles, and most forecasters predict EV sales in the country will accelerate rapidly as the government drives toward a goal of 100 percent electric vehicles by 2030.
