The $2 billion (R28m) factory - long under discussion - marks a major bet by the United States electric vehicle maker as it looks to bolster its presence in the world's biggest auto market, where it faces rising competition from a swathe of domestic rivals and its sales have been hit by increased tariffs on U.S. imports. He's pointed to sales of the sedan in Europe and China as a main reason he isn't concerned about any potential setback caused by the US federal tax credit toward Tesla purchases halving to $3,750 as of January 1.
Analysts have said production in China would allow Tesla to avoid such tariffs, which already have caused a spike in the price of the cars that Tesla now imports to the Chinese market.
Tesla signed a preliminary agreement in July with the Shanghai government previous year to build the 500,000-unit factory in the Chinese city.

A local Chinese plant may be crucial for Tesla, which is struggling to stave off a potential dip in demand in the US, its biggest market, after reductions in federal tax credits for EVs. The deadline of reduced tariff would end on March 2nd, and after that, the tariff on USA made autos on China would revert back to 40 percent, instead current 15 percent.
Lawyers for investors in this case said both she and her "current or former" friend, USA rapper Azealia Banks, were "in direct contact with Musk in the hours and days following the tweet" and might have evidence which was in danger of being destroyed because it was likely to be stored electronically, such as on social media.
Separately, Tesla confirmed in its third quarter financial report in October 2018 that it would bring "portions of Model 3 production" to China, now the world's largest vehicle market. Tesla, which has said it plans to use mostly local debt to fund the factory, plans to start production this year.
The so-called Gigafactory would also be China's first wholly foreign-owned vehicle plant, a reflection of China's broader shift to open up its auto market even amid a whipsawing trade war between Washington and Beijing.
Musk said the Shanghai plant would supply the "Greater China region" with "affordable versions" of the Tesla Model 3 - the carmaker's first mid-price, mass-market vehicle - and its planned Model Y.
