Tesla delivers first Model S cars to China
Tesla delivered its first eight electric Model S sedans to customers in China recently, and CEO Elon Musk says the company will build a nationwide network of charging stations and service centers as fast as it can. Tesla probably will invest several hundred million dollars in charging infrastructure in China, Musk says. "My instructions to the team are to spend money as fast as they can spend it without wasting it," he says. Musk previously said Tesla might try to manufacture cars in China in three to four years.
