    Default Te Si La or Tesla starts offering cars in China with no Chinese name

    Quite the squatter!

    "SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA) has started offering its poplar Model S sedans in China, but the U.S. premium electric carmaker has yet to give its brand a Chinese name due to a long-running trademark dispute."

    Texas, home of free enterprise*

    *Except for US car manufacturer Tesla.

    How ironic that communist China has more free enterprise than Texas.

    Maybe Texas legislators did not finish grade school or high school. Free enterprise is taught in both.

    Good luck selling Model S in China or South Korea. Regardless of what the original intent of the car is, cars at this price segment, especially 4 door sedans of this size, will be bought by people who want to be driven by a chauffeur.

    Model S, at that price point, has one of the worst "CEO seat" experience - this is the rear seat on the passenger side.

    If Musk wants to see his baby driven around in streets of Seoul, Model S will need to go on a Slim Fast diet. And that Beyoncé sized rear end is too wide for the side streets of Gangnam and parking structures at high end high rise condos where they might reside.

    I can't speak for Shanghai personally, but I'm sure they are just as congested as streets of Seoul, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong replete with lane splitting bikes and taxi cabs.
