Chinese Banks Rush to Fund Tesla’s $5 Billion Shanghai Factory
U.S. electric-car pioneer Tesla Inc. is seeking loan bids to fund its $5 billion Shanghai factory, sparking a rush by Chinese banks for a piece of its business.
A consortium made up of several lenders has been formed to provide loans to the factory, sources from multiple Chinese banks told Caixin.
However, they have yet to choose a leader, these people said, asking not to be named because negotiations are still ongoing. So far, multiple plans for the funding terms have been presented to Tesla.
