Tesla plans China expansion blueprint as Shanghai factory output gears up

Tesla Inc., the Palo Alto, CA-based electric vehicle manufacturer of billionaire entrepreneur Elon Musk, has been sketching out a plan to double down efforts on its China expansion grand design, as the e-vehicle maker which had recently revealed a surprise quarterly profit during Q3, 2019, would likely to add roughly 100 charging stations and to renovate a number of showrooms in China, people familiar with the subject-matter had unveiled on Wednesday, the 6th of November 2019.

In point of fact, latest Tesla move had remarked a sharp reversal of approach of the e-vehicle maker, as Tesla boss Elon Musk had announced back in March this year that the company was seeking to shutter down many of its retail stores in a bid to slash costs, nonetheless, the world’s largest automotive market, China, had always received special attention from Musk and it was no different this time.

Aside from that, following an earlier-than-expected trial-run of its Gigafactory in Shanghai, China, submissively voicing a stringent optimism over Chinese market which largely coincided with comments from people familiar with the matter on Wednesday (November 6th), Tesla Vice President Tao Lin said in an industry conference in Beijing last month, “Building cars from the Shanghai factory is just the first step. Next we must deliver cars very well to our customers and provide very good after-sales service. ”
