Those who recommend five (buying) friends are invited to the Gigafactory opening and the first person to find ten people willing to purchase a Model S, gets a Model X for free.
China electrifies further: Jianghuai Automobile Company (JAC) will invest 4.5 billion yuan (725m dollars) in the development of electric and hybrid vehicles. By 2025, they could already make up 30 percent of all sales by JAC.
