Lately, the Chief Executive Officer Elon Musk made a deal with one of the Chinese authorities. It is about building a new auto plant in Shanghai. Moreover, it will be the first factory outside the United States. Making it double the size of the electric car maker’s global manufacturing. But something seems off too. 

We gotta admit that Chinese car companies do belittle other countries. So in that case the Chinese government is working on expanding productivity amid agreements to curtail fossil-fuel use. The ultimatum is Tesla would make into a global carmaker depending solely on its fate in China.

As it was reported that the investors are piling up on Tesla’s abilities and nudging the company’s shares up almost 700% in 2020. So it seems unthinkable for Tesla to win over the Chinese. Especially against the local heros Nio Inc., Xpeng Inc., and Li Auto Inc.

What are the disadvantages of the new investment? 

We all know, after the US, China has been the best spot for Tesla’s advancement. As Tesla maintains its volatile production in the city of Shanghai; analysts are urged to prognosticate that Asia plays a major role in Tesla’s sales and production in the upcoming years.  

Wedbush Securities analyst Dan Ives states that “China could see eye-popping demand into 2021 and 2022 across the board with Tesla’s flagship Giga 3 footprint a major competitive advantage”. 

On the other hand, Tesla has centers at China’s lower-tier cities to increase its geographic footprint. Besides, smaller hubs are concentrating to reinforce public and government considerations.

One of the trade groups, China Passenger Car Association, has denoted that Tesla will sell as many as 280,000 vehicles in China in 2021. However, he claimed that PCA will have a total sales of 1.7 million new energy vehicles.

Accordingly, Tesla’s domination in China could be under threat in the upcoming years. 

So it was obvious when Xpeng Vice Chairman Brian Gu said that “I would call 2020 Year One of an intelligent electric-vehicle market in China”. Continuing, “We’re seeing really good sales of many good products.”

Having said that, the real threat to both Tesla and it’s Chinese association: is Conventional carmakers changing positions to electrified autos. These include Volkswagen AG, Daimler AG, and the Mercedes-Benz luxury cars,
