Deliveries in China may have been successful lately, but some customers from the Asian country condemned Tesla for various niggles that delayed deliveries, with one owner smashing his brand new Model S in protest for the dubious ways the carmaker treated some of its customers. That's not too cool more so when you, as a Chinese buyer, have to pay a lot of money for such a car. A Tesla Model S P85 has a base price of $81k in the U.S., but by the time it reaches China, that MSRP hikes to $121,000.
In other news, Tesla Motors' Fremont facility has stopped assembly of the Model S on July 21st for retooling and assembly line upgrades. This temporary stoppage is actually a way of telling the public "We're preparing the ground for the Model X electric crossover and we want to build more Model S sedans than before because they're selling so darn well." Elon Musk has played his cards like a master player up to this moment and the near future seems to hold many other big bangs from Lady Luck.
