Tesla CEO Elon Musk Offered Residency by China

Tesla CEO Elon Musk Offered Residency by China

Tesla named Ellison, who's reportedly close friends with chief executive Elon Musk, to its board in December as part of a settlement with the SEC, which was created in part to enhance oversight at the company.

Musk met Li on Wednesday, the premier's first foreign affairs event of the year. "I love China very much and I am willing to come here more", Musk told him. Replying to a tweet in which one Twitter user jokingly implied that Tesla vehicles in the year 2022 will look something like a flying DeLorean auto from Back to the Future, Musk stated that "the new Roadster will actually do something like this".

China hopes Tesla will become a participant in China's deepening opening up and a driver for the stable development of Sino-U.S. ties, Li said.

Li then responded, "If you do, we can issue you a Chinese green card". Li replied: "If this is what you truly have in mind, we can give you a "Chinese green card"". In contrast, more than 1 million people were granted permanent residency in the U.S. during 2017.

Tesla broke ground on Monday in Shanghai on its first factory outside the United States.

In response to a Twitter user question whether the company was "moving away from battery sizing in a similar sense to how Model 3s are sold ie Long Range, Performance etc?" China's foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang also said that the results of the talks could "be beneficial for both China and the US and also a good news for the global economy".
