Tesla To Expand China Operations - Looking For New Design Director - News Summary
The Tesla Gigafactory in Nanhui New City, Shanghai, China

According to three different sources, Tesla Inc is looking to fill in the position of 'Design Director' for its China operations as part of its ongoing market expansion efforts in the region. China happens to be the world's biggest auto market, with electric vehicles' sales slated to breach the 1.5 million mark this year. Efforts have been on for four months to zero in on the right candidate, with more than 20 years of experience in the Chinese industry, as it's the second-largest market for Tesla after the U.S., the sources confirmed.

Tesla is planning a fully functional studio, either in Shanghai or Beijing, to cater to the Chinese consumer tastes in the electric cars segment in keeping with CEO Elon Musk's vision. The brand's head hunters have been on the lookout to fill this position with a bi-cultural candidate to bridge the gap between the American and Chinese markets.  However, there's a lack of clarity on the current relations between the two economic superpowers. The incoming U.S. administration's policies are eagerly awaited for more plans to be realized. 

While speculation is rife about the number of candidates shortlisted, it has also been reported that Franz von Holzhausen, Tesla Inc.'s Global Design Chief, has already interviewed a few potentials. Both von Holzhausen and Tesla Inc. remain unresponsive to media requests for comments on the issue, while the three sources have chosen to remain anonymous due to the sensitive nature of the matter.
