TESLA Inc and the Shanghai government have left out a crucial detail in announcing a groundbreaking deal for the biggest name in electric cars to build its vehicles in China: how much it's all going to cost.

China already is the world's biggest electric auto market and is expected to grow further due in part to favourable government policies for the environmentally friendly vehicles.

The Norwegian Consumer Council stated on July 4 Tesla had climbed to fourth place in the first six months of this year in the list of companies Norwegians complain about the most, up from 24th in 2017.

"Tesla is deeply committed to the Chinese market, and we look forward to building even more cars for our customers here", the company said in its emailed statement.
