Tesla has set up a 50 stall charging station in Hong Kong - the biggest in all of Asia, despite plummeting sales.

Since the removal of the EV waiver on the registration tax sales of electric vehicles has gone from selling 5819 vehicles in March of 2017 down to 136 vehicles in the period of April 2017 to March of 2018. That's a pretty huge drop, almost 6000 in one month to less than 200 in one year.

^ those numbers are for ALL EV’s sold in China not just Tesla. And I agree with the articles stance that “Such partnerships with private developers may boost Tesla’s sales“

That’s why Tesla can produce as many Model 3’s as they have been. There’s no demand for the Model S in China at this time.

Good thing the NA market can absorb everything they can possibly make for some time to come.
Speaking of China, Tesla has acquired an 864,885-square meter plot in Shanghai's Lingang area for its new factory in China. They expect it to be productive in three years. Where are the other auto makers at with EV production in China?

They are producing cars in Chinese factories.

Really? I didn’t realize the big three were already pumping out electric vehicles in China?

China is the biggest EV market in the world, and is largely dominated by local companies we have never heard of, but which sell more vehicles in China than Tesla does worldwide.

 

Volkswagen, Daimler, BMW, and Renault Nissan all have an EV production presence in China. Not sure about the other automakers..

Musk has announced he plans to buy $20 million in Tesla stock.

 

For a man valued at $20 billion, if he wants to publicly disclose such a gesture he should be investing $200 million or an amount appreciably larger. $20 million looks kewl but what's the point when even a doubling of the stock won't be enough to even move his net worth ticker?

Not sure this should be published since there is no official source?  Another "didn't go well" story.  Lots of stories are published with anonymous sources.

As long as nobody on this forum is making the claim, we're good! :)

China has many of it's own car builders, BYD is huge and building electric vehicles along with others.

Yep, but my point was where are the ones we know in regards to manufacturing EVs for the Chinese market... They are barely in the EV game at all was my point and Tesla will be the first with its own factory in China even!

“Will” is still several years away.

I used to do business with China. Things are a little more complicated for western entities and the information that comes to light on our shores is not necessary a reflection of what’s going down on the ground.
