Tesla CEO Elon Musk spoke to Chinese state media on his trip to Shanghai this week to break ground on a new Gigafactory. 
He urged consumers to order their vehicle today in order to help fund the construction.
A cheaper Model 3 won’t happen any time soon, either, he said, so people should not wait for a price cut. 

For Chinese drivers hoping to snag a cheaper Tesla Model 3, CEO Elon Musk doesn’t want you to wait.

“I also want to encourage Chinese consumers to place an order for our Model 3 right now,” Musk told the state-owned Kanka News website on Monday while in Shanghai for the groundbreaking of a new Gigafactory. The interview was first reported by Bloomberg. See the rest of the story at Business Insider
