And Musk also highlighted the growth potential of the market in China along with the innovations by its rivals during recorded commentary for the World New Energy Vehicle Congress in Haina.

“Chinese consumers want a car with better-connected and more intelligent features, so we see great potential for connected, full self-driving vehicle growth in China,” said Musk in the statement via Barron’s. “I have a great deal of respect for the many Chinese automakers who are driving these technologies.”

One of the reasons why electric vehicle companies were so competitive in China is due those brands have sophisticated software development teams. Musk noted the importance of safety in Tesla’s design process and data security is considered the cornerstone of development across the whole industry.
