Musk said Tesla intends to make significant investments in China to build Model 3, Model Y and other future electric cars there. This means that Tesla has high hopes for China.

“We intend to continue making a significant investment and increasing the investment in China, making the Model 3 and the Model Y and future models also in China.”

He also announced that Tesla plans to create its own design and development center in China, where company will create a car for the whole world. Musk said:

“Something that would be super cool … so we’re going to do it … is to try to create a China design and engineering center to actually design an original car in China for worldwide consumption. I think this will be very exciting.”

Elon Musk is a genius inventor who always strives to create products that satisfy the demands of time and people's desires.

According to Musk, some of the best works of art in the world have been created in China, so he believes that his project, created in China, will also be popular around the world. The car will have the same unexpected design as the recently introduced Cybertruck. The Chinese have always been distinguished by originality, speed and intelligence, which is why China is a great place to develop, create and implement the most original and unexpected solutions.

Musk also talked about Model Y, which is due to be built this year. It is still unknown when the car will be released in Shanghai, but Chinese customers can already pre-order it. The Chinese government offers financial incentives to buy an electric car, so the price on the company’s website for Model Y is not yet final.
