 A Twitter user allegedly from China asked when the Model S Plaid made by Tesla would be in China.


Tesla’s head Musk replied on Sunday that the sedan is expected to occur in the Chinese market “probably around March.”

China is considered to have the largest electric car market among all other countries. It houses such brands as Xpeng and Nio. 

Tesla presented the Model S Plaid in the summer this year with an estimated cost of $129,990. The power capacity allows the vehicle to traverse the range of 520 miles (836 km) with a declared maximum speed of 200 mph (320 kph).

When the car was rolled out, Musk suggested that it would be “Faster than Porsche but safer than Volvo.”

Recently Musk sold Tesla’s shares worth $5 billion and a few days later he released stocks priced at $687 million to resolve the newly promoted “billionaire tax” problem. Musk previously claimed he needed to decide how to pay the tax if all of his money were in shares.
