Tesla boss Elon Musk said the electric car-maker would break ground Monday on a Shanghai factory that will allow it to sell to Chinese consumers and avoid tariffs from the China-US trade war.
In China, the billionaire-entrepreneur faces a vehicle market that probably shrank previous year for the first time in at least two decades as uncertainties surrounding the trade fight between the world's two biggest economies, signs of weakening domestic demand and a stock-market slump take their toll on consumers.

The drop in the numbers isn't just a direct effect of the trade war.
