Tesla building in China for production there. Only China now in big bubble of debt and cars not selling so well.Labor rates getting high but automated production does not mind. Its an interesting race and Elon doing a good job so far. Saw many model S in Hong Kong but once they expired the tax benefit sales plummeted. Most import autos get a 100% or more tax often doubles or tipples cost in almost every Asian nation. Then they add taxes to Cubic CC displacement so anything over a 2.0 gets stratospheric cost. It was explained to me that HK being a small island so none had any battery anxiety as few drove more than 10mi from home LNG/CNG very cheap, popular and clean and used in all cabs.
