Tesla's quest to construct its third so-called gigafactory gained urgency as US President Donald Trump has engaged in a trade war that's ensnared imports of US vehicles into China.
In addition, the Post reports that Tripp is asserting that the electric vehicle maker inflated Model 3 production numbers by as much as 44 percent. Those have already prompted Tesla to raise its prices for Chinese consumers (more on that below).
Musk said the Model 3 sedan was the third product on which Tesla gambled its existence, after its first vehicle, the Roadster sports auto, and the Model S sedan, which represented a sizable increase in annual production.
Ramping up manufacturing in Fremont first is critical to Tesla being able to sustain itself financially.
On Tesla's website, under its electric vehicle incentives page, it shows that as of January 1, the federal tax credit for anyone who purchases a new Model S, X or 3 will be reduced to $3,750 from $7,500.
The carmaker also has a giant battery factory in Nevada.
"Today, we have signed a Cooperative Agreement for Tesla to start building Gigafactory 3, a new electric vehicle manufacturing facility in Shanghai", a Tesla statement sent to the media read, adding that they are expecting construction to begin as soon as they secure all the necessary documents and permits. The category - which includes battery-powered, plug-in hybrid and fuel-cell automobiles - reached 777,000 units past year and could surpass one million sales in 2018, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.
Sales reports show that the company pulled out all the stops to avoid selling its 200,000th vehicle in the US until after July 1, to maintain the full tax credit for one extra quarter, by pushing more sales to Canada among other things.
Following the change, Tesla buyers will only be eligible to receive the full $7,500 federal tax credit until December 31. However, additional purchase incentives are available in a dozen states.
