A wide variety of colleges and universities abound in Beijing, endowing Beijing with advantageous resources in talents and technologies. Thanks to these world-class universities and research institutions in Beijing, Tesla will be able to make full use of Beijing's advantages in talent and innovation, Robin Ren added. In the future, cooperation between Tesla China and the Beijing Municipal Government will mainly focus on such areas as talent, energy storage and new energy. As Tesla expands its footprint in China in the future, Tesla (Beijing) Technology Innovation Center will also gradually expand its scale.

Robin Ren exposed that Tesla's products cover hardware, software, autopilot, energy storage of electric vehicles. Therefore, Tesla is actually a cross-border company, and its further cooperation with the Beijing Municipal Government will not be limited to new energy vehicles, energy storage and so on.

It is learned that apart from the Tesla (Beijing) Science and Technology Innovation Center, Tesla China headquarters, operations center, settlement center, and sales company have already settled in Beijing.

At the end of 2013, Tesla officially entered into the Chinese market. By far, seven experience centers and six service outlets have been established in Beijing. "We will not change Beijing's positioning as Tesla China's headquarters, which will play a comprehensive role in marketing, service, R&D and innovation." Robin Ren said.
