Tesla's Beijing Technology Innovation Center Announced During Elon Musk's Visit to China

Opting for the Model 3 dual-motor vehicle would add $5000 [£3800] to the $35,000 [£26,650] starting price of the entry-level Model 3 in the US, Musk said, and would allow the auto to reach 0-60mph in 4.5sec, with a 140mph top speed and 310-mile driving range.

Tesla has hit a speed bump that will cut subsidies for customers buying its electric vehicles in the U.S., after Elon Musk's carmaker hit a milestone of 200,000 sales. Tesla, though, will be able to operate independently thanks to a thaw in Bejing's stance on foreign automobile industry investment. China is the world's largest market for electric vehicles and was responsible for about 17% of the company's revenue in 2017.

The US government subsidises purchases of electric cars with tax credits of up to $7,500 (£5,700), which apply to all of Tesla's cars.

The Model 3 is Tesla's first mass-market vehicle, created to broaden the company's customer base beyond the luxury segment and increase the rate of electric vehicle adoption. It's built a total of about 88,000 vehicles through the first half of this year. Tesla's official website also included a table comparing the Model S favorably to the Model 3, both in features and in availability.

Ryanair pilots in Ireland start first strike
That is just ahead of planned strikes by cabin crew in Spain Italy, Portugal and Belgium on 25 July and 26 July. According to a statement from Ryanair, the meeting lasted for seven hours.

A former Tesla Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) employee alleges there are serious problems afoot with his former employer. By hitting the cap on or after July 1, Tesla would have one additional quarter with full tax credits that could be worth a combined more than $400 million to Tesla buyers, Bloomberg has estimated. Vehicles delivered in 2020 and beyond will not be eligible. Just recently, reports emerged from the Tesla community that the company had rolled out configurator emails to all Model 3 reservation holders. On the other hand, about 17 million vehicles are sold annually on the US market. Those tariffs raised the price on Tesla Model S to USD142,000 from about USD115,000, according to 24-7 Wall Street.

That makes the luxury cars even more luxurious, and adds urgency to the company's decision to build a factory in Shanghai.

Each manufacturer is allotted 200,000 credits before the phaseout begins.

Currently, battery cells made in Asia get shipped to the U.S.to end up in battery packs. Putting the factory closer to the market will shorten that process and potentially avoid logistics delays.
