Tesla is setting up a design R&D center to create a Tesla with Chinese characteristics
Tesla has been investing heavily in China. The EV maker’s first Gigafactory outside the US was completed in 10 months on the outskirts of Shanghai. A designed-in-China vehicle is the next step. The company didn’t announce a timeline for such a vehicle, but a design competition is open until February 1st. Tesla didn’t respond to a request for comment.
