?? Tesla is calling on all designers to come up with their suggestions Electric car to deliver in Chinese style.
?? The new vehicle is to be developed in China and produced for the whole world.
?? Exact plans are not yet known – but it should be an inexpensive small car below the Model 3.
However, the call made via Teslas Chinese WeChat account is not really concrete. The American company does not make any regulations regarding the size or type of vehicle in the post. The designs for the new electric car should only have a Chinese style. This is obviously the only relevant requirement for the ideas submitted. The assumption that it should be a small car for everyone is based on a published draft by Tesla and the statements of Elon Musk. The first concept for a Chinese car looks very compact and looks a bit smaller than the already established Model 3. In addition, according to Elon Musk, the newly developed electric car from China should be suitable for the global market, which is also a small and inexpensive vehicle indicates.
All designers are in demand
Tesla also makes no restrictions when it comes to submitting new designs. All creative minds are invited to submit their design proposals. The post explicitly mentions that even people who have not yet had any experience with the design of vehicles should participate in brainstorming. It is not even clear whether participation is limited to Chinese interested parties or whether suggestions from international designers are allowed. With this, Tesla opens the competition to an extremely broad mass.
Anyone who wants to immortalize themselves in the form of a new Tesla vehicle can therefore feel invited to contribute their ideas to the project. If it is up to CEO Elon Musk, the suggestions can be extraordinary and far from the conventional. According to his own statements, he can imagine “something radical like the cyber truck”.
Elon Musk’s enthusiasm for China
The reason why Tesla now absolutely wants to bring a Chinese electric car onto the market is partly because of Musk’s enthusiasm for the country. In his opinion, Chinese art is one of the best in the world, so an original car in the right style would be well received worldwide. Even at the official celebration of the start of Model 3 delivery in China, the Tesla boss was very grateful to his customers there. According to the TESLAMAG website, Musk was full of praise for the creativity and ingenuity of the population. At that time, he also announced that he wanted to build a design and development center in China.
Teslas further course of action is uncertain
Since the new project on developing a Chinese-style electric car is still in its infancy, neither Tesla nor Elon Musk have presented another roadmap for the production of the vehicle. Therefore, apart from the company’s ambitions, next to nothing is known about the future plans. This is probably also due to the fact that those responsible themselves are still very open about the implementation. Further information can probably only be expected once the design and concept of the electric car have been determined. Therefore, it will probably take a few years until the final market launch.
