Tesla Motors has launched its Chinese site,, as it prepares to sell its electric cars, the Model S and Model X, in China. The site is currently taking pre-orders with a reservation fee of RMB 250,000, or about USD $41,000 USD. The company hopes to start delivering the Model S in the first quarter of 2014. The site follows the opening of Tesla Motors’ showroom in Beijing last month. At that time, the China Daily reported that the Model S will cost between $146,000 and $200,000, due to the steep taxes that China levies on imports. In the U.S., each Model S is priced between $71,000 to $120,000 depending on its specs, while in Europe that range is $98,000 to $162,000.
