Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, the world’s largest electric car maker, is scheduled to visit China later this week. This is going to be Musk’s first visit to China in the last 3 years.
It is speculated that the purpose of this visit to Elon Musk may be related to Tesla’s business in China. What is the complete information, let us tell you.
Elon Musk will visit China.
This is Elon Musk’s first visit in three years to China, the world’s largest electric vehicle market. During his upcoming visit, Musk is expected to hold talks with high-ranking Chinese government officials.
The visit is expected to be a major focus on the EV company, which has set up a plant in Shanghai.
It was confirmed a while ago that Tesla executives have recently discussed the possibilities of starting a facility, reportedly from India.
China is important for Tesla as most global automotive manufacturers do their business here. Let us tell you that the plant set up in Shanghai was the first facility for Tesla and it was opened in 2019.
Elon Musk to visit Tesla Shanghai facility?
According to some media reports, Musk is also expected to visit the Tesla Shanghai facility.
At the same time, given the increasing competition between global and local players in China, it is possible that Musk will take a closer look at how to mitigate the emerging challenges.
Electric Vehicles are getting a boost in China.
Slowing demand for EVs within China in the recent past has also emerged as a dark cloud. However, the Chinese government is now looking to encourage rural buyers to make the switch.
Local governments are being urged to provide incentives not only to buyers but also to those setting up charging infrastructure. In such a situation, global brands like Tesla can sell well in these areas.
