Following their announcement that they're ahead of schedule producing and delivering the Tesla Model 3 in China, Tesla has announced that they're creating center in China.

They've begun recruiting through WeChat where they shared a drawing of a vehicle that could be a future vehicle or a design study of what the company is looking for from potential employees.

Tesla Design Center China


According to Car and Driver this has been something that Musk mentioned when he was at the Chinese Gigafactory for the first Chnese built Model 3s:

This didn’t just come out of nowhere. Last week during a visit to the Chinese Gigafactory to mark the delivery of the first Model 3s in the country, CEO Elon Musk talked about opening a design studio in the country and hiring designers to build a "Chinese-style car." Whether or not the vehicle seen in the WeChat posting is the basis for that vehicle is unknown.

Musk has a history of coming up with an idea and, within a few weeks, moving on it. His Boring Company went from an idea about tunnels being used to ease traffic to a company relatively quickly. Underground highways might be a thing of the future, but building a design studio in one of the largest automotive markets is a potentially smart move. Tesla is looking to the country to help grow its vehicle sales. Designing and building a vehicle specifically for China could help with that goal.

Currently, the Model 3 being sold in China is exempt from the country’s 10 percent purchase tax—a huge win for the company, even though the starting price there is about $50,000. The company said that it expects the Gigafactory in China to produce a 250,000 vehicles a year at the Shanghai factory. In the future, one of those cars could be designed by this new facility.

they started too early but I also think all their efforts in the States was a waste. They should've just focused on Europe and Asia.

The single-motor, rear-wheel-drive Cybertruck, will enter production in late 2022.
