Elon Musk Reportedly Urges To Export China-Made Tesla Cars to US, Canada

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has allegedly considered exporting electric vehicles made in China to the US and Canada to connect its largest factory to its largest market in North America.

The people, who requested to remain unnamed since the conversation was private, said that Tesla has been looking at the possibility of selling electric vehicles made at Shanghai’s Gigafactory in North America as early as next year.

They claim that when conducting its evaluation, Tesla considered whether components made by its Chinese suppliers would comply with legal requirements in the US and Canada.

For a small-batch test run of vehicle production in the first quarter of 2023 that would be compliant with North American standards for potential export, the Shanghai factory has been working on a preliminary plan.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk just said “False” on Twitter on Friday without providing any additional context. Tesla’s Austin, Texas-based representatives declined to comment or further explain Elon Musk’s assertion. A Tesla spokesperson in China responded by providing a screenshot of Elon Musk’s denial.

The appraisal of potential exports from Shanghai to North America and a document explaining some of the steps the Shanghai facility is taking to test its readiness by early 2023 were both created within the past two weeks.

Tesla wouldn’t be the first American auto manufacturer to bring in Chinese-made cars. The Buick Envision SUV was imported by General Motors, who also made an effort to obtain a waiver from the 25% US tariffs that the Trump administration had imposed.
