Tesla up call in China Ordered two millet lei jun of relief
As new energy vehicles, different fate, should.If, on the fate of the up a little bit sad, a fellow new energy vehicles of the tesla (198.23, 1.40, 0.70%) is still quite effectively.
Tesla valuation not only great progress, but also defeated in the field of luxury cars in the market a few big giants, including mercedes-benz, BMW and audi.In the north American market, in the first quarter of this year, about 4750 buyers chose the tesla Model S car, at the same time 3077 people choose the Mercedes s-class cars customers, choose the BMW 7 series of customer is 2338 people, and choose the audi A8 customers only 1462 people.

mainland China.This price is far lower than expected, there are media exclaimed "tesla will sell out of stock in China?"
Millet CEO lei jun booked two tesla, one for yourself, one for his involvement in investment CEO ucweb CEO of UC.
Lei jun is what tesla to buy?Because he thought the tesla CEO elon musk is a new generation of silicon valley giant, do everything is cool.Lei jun in July 2013 and October twice to silicon valley are met with musk, conveniently test drive the tesla.", in his opinion, the appearance of this car don't have much to pick, but if you haven't seen, never open the tesla car, you don't know how much the whole intelligent car cool."
"I with great curiosity to visit musk, helping to hand drive the tesla, this is an electric car. Electric cars have not fresh, many car companies are developing electric cars.
