JUN 18 2016 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 6

Recently, we have been getting reports of Tesla Model X’s arriving throughout the world. Canada received its first vehicle a few weeks ago, and this week Mexico received a test model to premier at the opening of six new Superchargers. Now, Beijing joins the list which will continue to grow in the coming weeks.

Video Description:

China is the first country in Asia to receive Model X. 400 Guests gathered at the Diaoyutai state guesthouse in Beijing to celebrate its arrival. The highly anticipated SUV appeared on stage carrying a family of 7 and their luggage.

Four hundred invite-only guests arrived at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse to share in the welcoming of the first Model X in Asia. The venue is a historic hotel in Beijing that is often used to host foreign government leaders. Tesla invited the guests for the upscale event.

China’s market for Tesla is growing rapidly and is the company’s second largest, following the U.S. The country has seen a 300 percent spike in growth this year alone.

In February, Tesla announced that deliveries in China would be around the first quarter of 2017. Robin Ren, Tesla’s VP of Asia Pacific, said that Tesla is more than six months ahead of schedule. He said:

“Stimulated by the impressive number of orders of Model 3, we are now making a new capacity plan.”

Tesla previously posted the video below to show off the event.

Looks like Tesla changed their marketing strategy…

Oh good grief. Lyndon Rive, SolarCity CEO and Musk’s cousin, is either huge cheapskate or Tesla’s marketing department created a fake story for news outlets to run as covert viral marketing.

While Lyndon Rive made only $275,016 in salary and bonuses, he has $77 million in stock options, which are currently out of the money (exercise price is greater than current market price. But he already owns a very substantial amount of Solar City stock, and in the past 3 years has sold a whopping $47,340,739 worth of Solar City stock. Unlike Tesla buyers of more moderate means, Mr Rive can easily use some of the $47+ million re received in proceeds from his stock sales to pay full price for a Model X and not ask for a discount. But at least a rich cheap skate like Lyndon Rives still gets the $7,500 federal tax credit if he buys a Model X.

So? How does that negate the fact that Mr. Rive paid the same price as anyone else?

It was a comment on the audacity and gall (if the story is true and not viral marketing) of someone who received $47+ million from the sale of stock, and is therefore fabulously wealthy, to ask for a discount on a Tesla as if he were a pauper.

The safest place to sleep, may be a Model X, IF the second row folded flat? Camper mode would be awesome if those seats did fold.??
