Tesla begins selling the Model S in China

Tesla has officially entered the Chinese auto market.

“As of now, TESLA Model S reservations are being accepted,” Tesla said Wednesday on Weibo, a Chinese microblogging site similar to Twitter.

Tesla’s Model S is manufactured in California and the Netherlands. It has been for sale in the United States since 2012 and has recently gone on sale in Europe.

Elon Musk, Tesla’s founder and CEO, discussed plans to expand into China following the release of corporate results earlier this month.

A representative from Tesla declined to answer questions about the company’s China plans.

China has become the world’s biggest market for automobiles, surpassing the United States. Major global automakers are fighting for market share. General Motors (GM, Fortune 500), one of the top-selling automakers in China, currently sells the Chevy Volt plug-in hybrid there — although in very limited quantities.
