Tesla hits 200,000 U.S. sales, tax credit phase-out to commence

People walk past a showroom outside Tesla China headquarters in Beijing

Tesla is once again in the news for allegedly mistreating its workers, according to a new report claiming that the electric auto company forced factory employees to walk through raw sewage to avoid interrupting production.

"Shanghai will be the location for the first Gigafactory outside the United States", Musk said in a statement released by the company and Shanghai's government.

As Indians eagerly await Tesla vehicles to hit the roads, Elon Musk, the CEO of the company, could now well be on his way to India. "Incredibly impressed with Tesla China team & potential for the future".

Tripp complaint filed with the SEC includes accusations that the former Tesla employee has disclosed to the press before: Tesla overstated to investors the number of Model 3 vehicles being produced each week by as much as 44%; batteries with puncture holes were installed into Tesla vehicles; and the company systematically reused scrap and waste parts in vehicles.

However, things are not in very great shape at the moment for Tesla in the US. Tesla made 2,685 Model 3 vehicles in 2017. That falls to 25% during the six months after that.

Tesla said they are looking forward to working and building more cars for their Chinese customers. "It happens to be that now is when you have the trade altercation going on".

Hawks acquire Jeremy Lin from Nets
The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the trade had not been announced. Lin, 29, was sidelined for the entire 2017-18 season after rupturing his patellar tendon on opening night.

Incidentally, Musk about a year ago said that Model 3 production should reach 10,000 units per week before the end of 2018. "I think it's really coincidental".

Analysts noted that the announcement did not estimate the cost of the plant, or how it would be financed.

With more than 400,000 customers holding deposits on the Tesla Model 3, many of those customers will likely not receive any federal tax credit.

Tesla announced in June it was cutting nine per cent of its workforce, or nearly 4,000 jobs, in an effort to boost profitability.

Earlier this month, CEO Elon Musk announced that the company had built 5,000 of the vehicles during the last week of the second quarter, meeting its revised production goal.

"If foreign automakers develop and build electric vehicles in the country, its domestic industry has the chance to absorb new, advanced technologies, helping China transform from a mere market into an automaking heavyweight", a report added.
