Default This Could Be Tesla's First Car Designed In China



Considering I still donít know whether to take the Tesla Cybertruck reveal seriously or not, Tesla has revealed a new, refreshingly reserved design sketch in an effort to recruit design talent for its plans in China.
Tesla just opened its Shanghai Gigafactory, where it plans to build the Tesla Model 3 and Model Y for the local market. With that established, the company now wants to open a new design development studio in the country as well.
The image of the previously-unseen Tesla design was featured on the companyís official WeChat account, according to abacusnews.com, in a post announcing the company would be searching for submissions for a designed-in-China model due by February 1.
It appears to be a design study for possibly some sort of Tesla hatchback or city car, likely smaller than anything weíve seen from the company yet. Itís also possible that this could be some version of a Tesla crossover coupe, heaven forbid.
Given the context, though, Iím doubtful this is a serious Tesla design and I wouldnít get my hopes up for a production version. Why show off a new upcoming car design if youíre asking people to also come up with a new upcoming car design? The post itself makes no mention of what the car actually is, according to Google Translate.
Regardless, itís nice to see that for every Cybertruck, thereís a good chance weíll get something else thatís a little more... normal. Now we just have to worry about Tesla not selling whatever designed-in-China model it settles on in the U.S.
