美媒: 特斯拉拟议中的中国工厂每年将生产50万辆汽车

Tesla’s proposed Chinese factory would crank out 500,000 cars a year (updated)

特斯拉拟议中的中国工厂每年将生产50万辆汽车

That didn't take long: Days after Tesla raised prices to offset import tariffs in China, the company has announced it has reached an agreement with the government in Shanghai to produce vehicles in the region. According to Bloomberg, it'll rival production of Tesla's sole factory in the US, with capacity to build 500,000 cars per year. It apparently won't be the only plant revealed in 2018, as the company teased that details for a European production facility would be discussed later this year.

在特斯拉上调价格以抵消中国的进口关税几天后,该公司宣布已与上海政府达成协议,在该地区生产汽车。据彭博社称,中国工厂的产能将与特斯拉在美国的唯一工厂持平,每年可生产50万辆汽车。这显然不是特斯拉2018年披露的唯一一家工厂,该公司透露,将在今年晚些时候对欧洲工厂的细节进行讨论。

Over the weekend, Tesla raised prices on the Model S and Model X by over $20,000 (depending on configuration) as a result of the ongoing trade war between the US and China. While there previously was a 25 percent import tax, it didn't stop the region from buying Tesla's cars. Last year the automaker sold 14,779 vehicles in the country, and the country represented almost 20 percent of Tesla's revenue. Then China raised the import duties for American-made vehicles by an additional 15 percent as a response to President Trump's trade war.

上周末,由于中美之间持续的贸易战,特斯拉将Model S和Model X的价格上调了2万多美元(根据配置而定)。虽然之前有25%的进口税,但这并没有阻挡该地区消费者购买特斯拉的汽车。去年,这家汽车制造商在中国售出了14779辆汽车,占特斯拉总收入的近20%。随后,作为对特朗普总统贸易战的回应,中国又将美国产汽车的进口关税提高了15%。

It isn't entirely clear what Tesla will build at the factory, but Musk has previously hinted that it'd likely be a site for Model 3 and Model Y (the company's crossover vehicle) production. Those cars still need batteries, though, and Tesla's lone battery factory is in Nevada.

目前尚不完全清楚特斯拉将在这家工厂生产什么,但马斯克此前曾暗示,它可能是Model 3和Model Y(该公司的跨界车型)的生产基地。不过,这些汽车仍然需要电池,而特斯拉唯一的电池工厂位于内华达州。

Musk has been talking about building a plant in China long before Trump added 25 percent import duties to over 1,300 Chinese products including steel, iron and touchscreens. The move will cut down on shipping fees, for starters, but it will also help Musk reach the production numbers and profitability he's been chasing for years.

早在特朗普向1300多种中国产品(包括钢、铁和触摸屏)征收25%的进口关税之前,马斯克就已经考虑在中国建厂了。首先,此举将降低整车的运输费用,但也将帮助马斯克实现多年来一直追求的产量和盈利能力。

Harley Davidson recently did something similar. As a means of sidestepping the trade war Trump started with Europe by adding tariffs to imported aluminum and steel, the company announced that it'd shift production of motorcycles destined for European customers to the continent.

哈雷戴维森最近也做了类似的事情。为避开特朗普对欧洲进口铝材和钢材加征关税而导致的贸易战,这家公司宣布,将把面向欧洲客户的摩托车生产业务转移到欧洲大陆。

Now to see how fast Tesla can build in China and if the factory will be up and running before this trade war ends.

现在来看看特斯拉在中国的建设速度会有多快,以及在这场贸易战结束之前,特斯拉的中国工厂能否完工并开始生产。

Update: A Tesla spokesperson reached out to offer the following statement:

更新:特斯拉的一位发言人发表了如下声明:

"Last year, we announced that we were working with the Shanghai Municipal Government to explore the possibility of establishing a factory in the region to serve the Chinese market. Today, we have signed a Cooperative Agreement for Tesla to start building Gigafactory 3, a new electric vehicle manufacturing facility in Shanghai. We expect construction to begin in the near future, after we get all the necessary approvals and permits.

“去年,我们宣布,我们正与上海市政府合作,寻求在上海建立工厂以服务中国市场的可能性。今天,我们签署了一项合作协议,开始为特斯拉在上海建立新的电动汽车制造工厂Gigafactory 3。我们希望在获得所有必要的批准和许可后,在不久的将来开始动工建设。”

From there, it will take roughly two years until we start producing vehicles and then another two to three years before the factory is fully ramped up to produce around 500,000 vehicles per year for Chinese customers. Tesla is deeply committed to the Chinese market, and we look forward to building even more cars for our customers here.

我们大约需要两年的时间才会开始生产汽车,然后再用两到三年的时间将这家工厂完全建成完工,每年为中国客户生产约50万辆汽车。特斯拉坚定地致力于中国市场,我们期待着为我们的客户制造更多的汽车。

Today's announcement will not impact our U.S. manufacturing operations, which continue to grow."

今天的声明不会影响我们继续发展的美国制造业。”

Tariff is 15%. Increasing cost $20,000 means the cost before tariffs was $133,333 per car. Cost after Tariff will be $153,333. That is hardly an affordable car.

关税税率是15%。成本增加2万美元意味着每辆车的税前成本为133,333美元。税后售价为$153,333,有点负担不起。

I thought tax breaks were supposed to stop corporations from moving. What was the purpose of the tax breaks?

我以为税收减免就是为了阻止公司撤离。不然减税是为了什么?

They sold 14,xxx last year. A real car company sells that many in 1 month. . Even if they made 500,000 cars a year, who is going to buy them?

特斯拉去年卖出了14000多辆车,而一家真正的汽车公司一个月就能卖出这么多。即使他们每年能生产50万辆车,又有谁会去买呢?
