Elon Musk showed off some rather NSFW moves at the launch of Tesla's Model Y electric sports utility vehicle programme at its new Shanghai factory on Tuesday. Shanghai is where Tesla delivered its first cars built outside the United States to the public.

According to a Reuters report, the $2 billion Tesla Inc factory at Shanghai started delivering cars in just 357 days, a record for global automakers in China and the first 10 customers received their China-made Model 3 sedans on Tuesday.

Tesla CEO Musk was recorded danced enthusiastically on stage at the event. He went on to strip off his jacket and fling it aside to reveal a T-shirt which sported a cartoon print of the factory.

Musk also tweeted about it. Clearly, the Tesla CEO had no problems with his little jig going viral. He labelled the video "NSFW" (not safe for work) when he posted it online.

 

At the event Elon also predicted that "ultimately Tesla Model Y will have more demand than probably all the other cars of Tesla combined", with his voice cracking with emotion at times while talking about the progress of the Shanghai factory, according to the Reuters report.

The ceremony at the factory was attended by Shanghai Mayor Ying Yong along with other senior government officials.

 

Celebration aside, Tesla executives did not provide any further details about the progress of the China-made Model Y project.

Tesla's shares have been trading close to their "record high" after it beat Wall Street estimates for vehicle deliveries in its fourth quarter. The news of the production ramp-up in the China factory and "upbeat" early deposits for its recently launched pickup truck have also supported Tesla's positive performance with the bulls the bears.

The construction of Tesla's first plant outside the United States began in January and production started in October. It started with a production capacity of 150,000 Model 3 sedans and the company aims to push that to 250,000 vehicles a year, including Model Y, in the first phase.

Tesla unveiled its Model Y in March last year and announced in October that the production of the electric compact SUV at its Fremont facility was "running ahead of schedule, adding at the time that it expects to launch the model by summer 2020".

According to Reuters, the margin expectations are higher for Model Y than Model 3, while production costs are roughly the same. Tesla's China website "estimates the starting price for Model Y vehicles at 444,000 yuan ($63,911.56)". The company will announce the retail price later. The China-made Model 3 sedans are priced at 355,800 yuan before subsidies.

Speaking at the event in the factory today, Shanghai Vice Mayor Wu Qing said that he hoped to see Tesla extend its cooperation with the city and for the car maker to manufacture more models at its Chinese plant.
