Elon Musk is trying to bring China back

Electric car maker Tesla Elon Musk (Elon Musk) has struggled in China for two months, and the CEO is now trying to return to Beijing.

The CEO of the company expressed his appreciation to China in an interview with China Central Television and China Central Television and pledged that China would be China's largest market for electric cars in the long term.

He also praised China's economic and climate goals. Although the country is currently the largest emitter of greenhouse gases in the world, it aims to reduce its emissions significantly over the next decade.

“I have full confidence in Tesla's future in China,” Musk told CCTV in an interview. I think the Chinese economy will do well over the next 10 years, becoming the largest in the world, and advocating for a sustainable energy future.

This praise could be vital to Tesla's future in China. Although Tesla has received special treatment from the Chinese government in China in recent years, it has come under heavy criticism in recent weeks.

Chinese officials contacted Tesla last month to solve quality issues with their Shanghai-made cars.

There was little news in the media last weekend that the military prevented Tesla cars from entering its headquarters due to concerns that Tesla car cameras were being used as spies.

Solving the espionage problem, Musk told a development conference in China: His company's car will never be used for this purpose.

But he went further by praising Beijing and highlighting the market's importance to Tesla with CCTV comments.

China accounts for one-fifth of Tesla's sales and the second largest market after the United States.

"In the long term, China will be our biggest market. We will produce most of the cars and most of the customers," Musk told CCTV.

Speaking of Beijing's ambitious plan for economic supremacy for the next five years, Musk said he admires China's climate goals.

The Chinese president said in September last year that China would achieve carbon neutrality by 2060. The Chinese government has shown some ways to achieve this goal, including building more nuclear power plants and clean power plants.

Elon Musk said: These goals are very powerful. I think these are big goals. I hope more countries will achieve these goals. I have full confidence in the future of China.

Although he does not speak Chinese, Musk is still one of the most famous American businessmen in China.

When the Model 3 launched in Shanghai early last year, a video of it was danced on stage on Weibo.

The Prime Minister once said: After an American businessman said that he is very fond of China, he is happy to give Mask a Chinese Green Card.

Musk has about 1.7 million subscribers on the Chinese social media platform Weibo, more than the CEO of Apple but fewer than Bill Gates, the founder of Microsoft, who has 4.1 million subscribers.
