I would like to discuss the potential locations strategy and partnerships behind the Third generation vehicles. We all know that model E will be the biggest milestone for Tesla and it is a core of the master plan. Currently I believe most probable set is as follows: Model S, X and powertrains production in California Battery production: Texas or Arizona (~20% Panasonic ownership) Third generation vehicles production facility with high volumes- China (~30% Chinese ownership in return of funding the facility) Powertrains and batteries are exported from USA. Without importing tax, China could be biggest consumer for model E. Also to reach 30% profit on third generation vehicles the factory needs to be in China. Part of the produced vehicles will be exported to USA and Europe. Digging in the Chinese web for more than a month specifically for Tesla, have no doubt that government and investment community in China will support and invest in this facility. I will try to combine in this thread the Macroeconomic Factors as well as other reasons and the abilities for China to support this production.
