Now, with China promising to loosen its hold on the vehicle market, the biggest gains will be seen by NEV ventures such as Tesla's.

Last week the automaker registered a new electric vehicle firm in Shanghai, China, according to a filing with the National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System.

Tesla now imports all the electric vehicles it sells in China from the United States.

AFP reported that Tesla has set up a company in Shanghai focusing on technology development in China, a crucial market for the USA firm as the country plans to scrap ownership limits for foreign automakers.

As per Electrek, the scope of the new company's business includes the basic wholesale, import-export, and electric auto display, but also is registered for technology development and transfer.

Tesla has set up a subsidiary in Shanghai that will focus on R&D related to electric cars, a clear indication that its plans to build a plant in China have been revived. The wholly owned subsidiary of Tesla US got its business license from Pundong New Area's market regulation bureau.

Tesla is expected to soon announce its next Gigafactory in Shanghai, China, as new company registrations have been discovered.

The potential liberalisations were believed to pave the way for global companies such as Tesla to set up their own production bases in the world's largest auto market.

Now all Tesla cars sold in China are imported from the US.

Analysts have said the main beneficiaries of looser ownership rules would be NEV makers like Tesla to protect its technology rather than cede a 50 percent share. Now, Tesla has announced that it would unveil the location of its own Gigafactory in China. The company's sales grew by more than 90% from a year ago in China. Plug-in-hybrid vehicle sales are booming in the country.

Last year, 777,000 electric and plug-in hybrid cars were sold on the mainland, up 53 per cent from 2016.
