Elon Musk plans to visit China, seeks meeting with Premier Li Qiang: Report

Tesla CEO Elon Musk is planning to visit China as early as April and is hoping to meet with China’s Premier Li Qiang, according to two sources familiar with the trip’s planning who spoke to Reuters.

China is Tesla’s second-largest market, with its Giga Shanghai plant being the company’s largest production hub.

This will be Musk’s first visit to China since the COVID-19 pandemic and since Xi Jinping secured his third term as China’s president. As of now, neither Tesla nor China’s State Council Information Office have responded to requests for comments.

Yesterday, Tesla teased a “Cybervault” unveiling in China, coming on April 3, and Musk’s reported visit may coincide with the announcement. Tesla recently launched its first Model S and Model X deliveries in China as well.
