Tesla has said that the Gigafactory will cost around $2 billion. Although the exact number can not be released, Tesla said that its sales in China in the first two months of this year have more than doubled from the same period last year.

"We believe NIO would have to offer some incentives or more features on ES6/ES8, amid peers' new product launch/price discount, and the electric vehicle purchase subsidy cut later this year", Lee said.

The decision not to allow Nio to follow through on previously announced plans to build its own auto factory in Shanghai effectively means Nio may have to wait in line until rival Tesla's plant in the city reaches capacity.

Chinese electric vehicle start-up NIO has abandoned plans to build a manufacturing plant in Shanghai after net losses doubled to $1.4 billion a year ago. The plant is Tesla's first assembly factory located outside of the U.S.

A group of institutional investors in Tesla has sued CEO Elon Musk, alleging that his repeated "misstatements on Twitter" continue to harm the company and its shareholders.

Producing cars in China is likely to help the company minimize the impact of the U.S.

Currently Tesla builds all of its vehicles at its Fremont, California factory, a former General Motors plant. Tesla began delivering the first Model S cars built there in June 2012.

Musk is betting on China's growing market for electric cars as Beijing pushes the industry away from fossil fuel vehicles. As of the end of June, the company had paid JAC RMB 65 million (around $10 million) for losses during the second quarter of 2018, according to Nio's IPO filing. It already forced Tesla to rework its prices of USA -made cars in the China market. While preparing this report, the Tesla shares were down by 1.3 percent at $281.73.

China agreed to roll back the tariffs to 15 percent last December after Chinese president Xi Jinping and Donald Trump met at the G20 summit in Argentina for trade negotiations. Talks are still ongoing and the March 1 deadline to reach a deal has been extended by President Trump.
