Tesla just got yet another 5-year low interest loan of 10 billion RMB (yes Billion with a B), or approximately 1.5 billion US dollars, from several major Chinese banks.

90% of the standard interest just like last time.​

Wow, I wonder if they know that in Firefox I can just hit F9 to "Enter Reader View" and see the whole article? :p

"Gregor Hembrough, head of Polestar USA, said in an affidavit that Polestar has accepted refundable reservations from seven Illinois residents, but final transactions have to be handled by a Polestar retailer."

Off-the scale-demand!!!

Polestar said they will first release in 9 countries.

China,California, Canada, Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Evidently, Volvo considers California a country.

They later added Seattle.

Chicago/Illinois is not in the first waive of markets to get Polestar.

At this point China probably considers California and Seattle as provinces. Australia is also a province, but obviously only important for its commodities rather than its market.

I recently moved to Redmond, WA...surprised by how many Teslas are on the road. Quite awesome. 2 coworkers added this quarter and were expanding our work provided on-site Tesla charging by double capacity 4 to 8, and they’re always full.

Redmond needs a supercharger tho. Kinda far and traffic-ky to get to alternatives.

Who else is going to join us?

count me in for at least 5 more! I started accumulating in early 2013 when I thought this could be a 10 bagger and now, at $400, it WILL be ANOTHER 10 bagger.

From the article the root of the dealers' complaint is that they already sell Volvo Polestar's so they don't think it is fair for Volvo to split that brand without giving them the opportunity to sell them. And they cite the recent Hyundai/Genesis split where eventually all Hyundai dealers could join if they agreed to build dedicated facilities within x time. But to my laymen sensibilities I think it's different in that Genesis cars were without a Hyundai badge when the Hyundai dealers had sold them. The old polesters were just a trim level of volvos.

There are also more middle class Chinese citizens than all us citizens total. China is a very complex beast.

Using a "Chinese" definition of middle class not a Western one.

Western businesses tend to look at the Top 200M wealthiest Chinese and extrapolate incorrectly.

The Wealth distribution is not similar to Western countries.

Without being a braggart, I strongly suspect that with the likely exception of @jbcarioca, I have known more high-profile CEOs than anyone else active on this forum.

And I can unequivocally and absolutely answer that question. Other than Mr Musk, I can count them on the back of my third hand.

AH, a Motie in our midst.

The Chinese middle class is bigger then America’s middle class, but not bigger then the whole USA. Unless you define the Chinese middle class as a us poverty income.
