According to my research the demand for the Model S in China is huge, and now I received confirmation from a Tesla store employee. Tesla to ship 15,000 cars to China next year and there is a waiting list already? You can find my entire article here: http://www.investnaire.com/?q=groups/tesla-investment-and-trading/tesla-model-s-demand-china-huge Remember that Tesla just started accepting reservations for the Model S in China less than three months ago. Update: Sorry guys, looks like the article has been taken down. I apologize for this inconvenience and nobody is more upset about this situation than I am. One of the reasons I started writing on my own is so that I have complete control over the content. I will have to think about my next steps, but I might have to start my own blog so that this does not happen again. DaveT covered the gist of the article. I would just add that I talked to a low level Tesla employee who said that demand in China is huge and that there is a waiting list for the Model S. I can tell that the employee was genuine in what he said, but the source of his information is unknown and it could have easily come from customers (although I highly doubt this, since his knowledge about the company was so extensive). That said, I am confident that demand in China is indeed "huge". I have spent countless hours researching this topic and the company as a whole, the employee only confirmed by research. Unfortunately, I do not have the time to compile my research to present it to you guys, since I have a full-time job, family, kids, and have to manage several investment portfolios. My research consists of reading Chinese websites, reading opinion polls, Chinese Government programs, talking to my Chinese friends, looking at other auto companies strategies and success in China, etc. It would be impossible to compile all of this data into one concise article in a timely manner. But if you spend hundreds of hours researching this data, like I have, then the answer is pretty clear. I stand by everything I wrote and I know that demand in China is in fact huge. I will try to find another way to post this article to share with everyone.
