Tesla expands the boundaries and build the Gigafactory plant in China

Rumors that the company Tesla wants to cooperate with China and build in this country the plant for the production of electric cars, walked across the Network all week. First reported by the Chinese publication China Daily, later he was joined by Bloomberg and Reuters. Now, the information was officially confirmed. Tesla actually negotiating with the local government agencies of China about the construction of the Gigafactory megafactories.

At the request of the portal Electrek to comment on the situation, and to describe the potential construction of the Chinese plant Gigafactory, the company's representatives responded with the following:

"Tesla works with the leadership of the Shanghai Municipality on the consideration of the possible construction of production capacity in the region to work in the China market. As we have noted earlier, we are going to form more concrete plans for production in China by the end of this year.

Tesla is very interested in working in the China market, and we will continue to develop our production capacity around the world to support and other local markets."

The Exact details of the deal between Tesla and the Chinese government remain secret, however, as pointed out by China Daily and Bloomberg, the necessary papers were signed this Thursday. It is no secret that the company wants to build a few more of his ultra-modern factories Gigafactory, and China as one of the first objectives is best. According to the Agency LMC Automotive Consulting in Shanghai, in the period from 2015 to 2016 sales of Tesla cars increased by 181,7%. Last year, China had delivered 10 399 electric vehicles this company that brought her more than $ 1 billion of revenue.

Having the possibility of producing its electric cars in China, Tesla can avoid the obligation to pay a 25 percent import tax, which she has to pay now. Despite the expansion, the company, however, reported that the main production of cars Tesla will continue to be focused directly on the territory of the United States.

"We expect that the greater the volume of production of our cars will be able to keep within the United States. However, we would like to develop other areas to make our cars as accessible in other markets".

The permission for the construction of environmentally friendly megafactories Gigafactory in China once again will be a direct indication of the desire of the government to find solutions to this extremely adverse environmental conditions. At the moment, China has seen a real boom in interest in renewable energy. Yes so that the country became the largest producer of solar energy in the world. In some key cities of China increased the interest in electric vehicles, this transport introduce incentives. And the presence here of the Tesla factory will strengthen the country's position in relation to the fight against climate change.
