  • If someone gave me a million dollars to sum up, in prediction, the 21st century, it would take just one word: China. To use one of Jeff Bezos’ favorite expressions, we are in Day One of China’s influence of the world. China has spent a lot of time building its own market into one of strength. The time

    If someone gave me a million dollars to sum up, in prediction, the 21st century, it would take just one word: China. To use one of Jeff Bezos’ favorite expressions, we are in Day One of China’s influence of the world. China has spent a lot of time building its own market into one of strength. The time will soon come when China uses that strength to dominate the global markets.

  • Tesla’s growth story will likely be tied to the growth story of China’s electric-car market, which will remain the world's largest for decades to come.

    Tesla’s growth story will likely be tied to the growth story of China’s electric-car market, which will remain the world's largest for decades to come. That growth will be accompanied by more and more Chinese nationals gaining expertise in the industry.

    • open sources designs

    • vertically integrates manufacturing

    • manufactures in country it sells to

    • locally owned giga-factories

    The future of manufacturing is local.
