The electric vehicle maker said it was speeding up construction of its Shanghai factory as it seeks to combat the hefty tariffs. Taking ocean transport costs and import tariffs into account, Tesla is now operating at a 55% to 60% cost disadvantage compared to the exact same vehicle locally produced in China.
Musk in July landed a deal with Chinese authorities to build a new auto plant in Shanghai, its first outside the United States and a key to doubling its global capacity.
The company delivered 83,500 vehicles during the third quarter, a strong performance that should calm investor fears about logistical problems and a looming cash crunch.
