On January 8th, according tomedia reports, electric car maker Tesla held a delivery ceremony at its Shanghai super factory yesterday, delivering a home-made Model 3 to 10 lucky public owners, with Tesla CEO Elon Musk also present.
According to the announcement on Tesla’s official website, Musk arrived at the Shanghai Super factory yesterday morning on the Model X, while the delivery ceremony for the home-made Model 3 took place yesterday afternoon.
The day before the delivery ceremony, Musk had left Los Angeles for Shanghai, and on the evening of January 6th, Musk’s private jet Gulfstream G650 followed China Eastern’s “Los Angeles-Shanghai” MU578 flight, and followed closely behind. But the Gulfstream G650 flew higher and faster than China Eastern’s Boeing 777, so it overtook it midway through and landed in Shanghai earlier than civil aviation. Later, China Eastern Airlines’ official website weibo commented, is worthy of building rockets, under the admiration.
The tweets and comments from China Eastern have once again put Musk’s private jet in the public eye.
