Elon Musk wants one of the new Tesla cars to be designed exclusively by Chinese expertsJanuary 8, 2020
The American automaker Tesla is not going to limit itself to the production of electric cars in China alone. In the near future, the company plans to hire a team of Chinese designers, planners and engineers, and there is already a task for them. This was stated by the head of Tesla, Ilon Musk, who flew to China on the occasion of the transfer of the first electric cars made at Shanghai Gigafactory to customers.
“We intend to continue to invest heavily in China, where we will produce not only Model 3, but also Model Y, as well as future Tesla models,” Musk promised at first, and then went on to the main announcement: “I think it will be super cool “That’s why we will do this: create a design and engineering center in China to design a car for sales all over the world with the help of exclusively Chinese specialists … Chinese art is one of the strongest in the world, and therefore Tesla developed in China, I believe, will receive global recognition “.
The entrepreneur added that the “Chinese Tesla”, according to the preliminary plans of the automaker, will be a “radical” and “unexpected” car – like Cybertruck.
In addition, during his speech at Gigafactory 3, Musk thanked the Shanghai officials for their cooperation, expressed gratitude to the factory workers and the first buyers of the company’s electric cars made in China, and also … he danced.
