    US companies need to move out of China. Moving out of China is a long term investment in our future.

      Where can you manufacture a car battery in America? What facility? I’ll give you a few days to google what you want to see.

      The history of American politics has let China take all of the renewable energy prowess while America obsessed over digging ditches in West Virginia.

    So many ignorant people. Toyota manufactures most its cars sold in China, in China. The same goes for Mercedes and bmw. It’s time to get a little educated about how the world works American born idiots.

      Right, which accounts for a small subset of the BMW lineup.
      Thanks for providing that link!

      How is their SUV line a "small subset"?
      May 6
    • Salesforce BndTheKnee
      Because it’s only 5 of the 18 models produced, and most of those 5 fall at the lower end of the BMW sales by volume.

      Dude. https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/BMW_Brilliance

      “manufactures most its cars sold in China, in China.”

      I guess you will say bmw 5 series and 3 series are just a tiny subset of bmw since 99% of bmws sold are 7 series?

      Did you not read your own link?
      Look at the sales numbers and read through the wiki. That’s a joint venture with BMW, and one of their vehicles aren’t even an actual BMW vehicle, but a Chinese-only production by the “Brilliance” venture.

    “Tesla was unable to find a [U.S.] manufacturer with the requisite expertise to produce the Autopilot ECU 3.0 with the required specifications, at the volume requested and under the timelines necessary for Tesla’s continued growth,”

    Do you even read an article completely?

      @Oomnj:
      "Maybe Tesla should not expect profits on the cars"
      "Maybe Tesla should not think about cutting edge technology if it doesn't find expertise in US"
      "Maybe Tesla should not think about manufacturing electric cars in the first place"

      Business is not just about creating products it's about creating products with customer centric and profits in mind and deliver the products up ahead of competitors.
      Do you think companies don't do any research before choosing a place to build they're manufacturing unit in a place without any reason?

      Grow up dude.

      Did Tesla sign a contract agreeing not to invest in China? If so, they should definitely be sued.

    manufacturing should be repatriated to the USA. no reason at all things cannot be built here. boeing does it (final assembly and a lot of parts). toyota does it. mercedes and bmw do it. no raeson at all to be in china. any dependency on the chicoms is long term bad for business.

      Of course he supported because that's what the problem is. He's trying very hard to bring it back. But the gap is too big. You need to see how things work in China how much workers earn there and ask yourself "can we do the same". And you probably say "no"

      We gotta bring manufacturing back with robots taking the bulk of low paying jobs. This way it can also generate higher paying manufacturing supporting and over-seeing jobs.

      The only thing we can’t do is let Biden win who’ll just set up a yard sale for the US

      Manufacture in China is already being partially automated. Automation will happen in China first because the non-automated part is still much cheaper in China. They can do semi-automation.
      While in US it's not viable as long as a tiny bit work is not automated.
      And even when technology finally developed into a stage that fully automated manufacture happens, why would it happen in US instead of China? What's the benefit?
      BTW some leftiests already draft "robot tax", before the tax base is even real. Why would anyone want to bring back their robots? It might be better just paying the tariff than robotax.

      Yeah just never vote for increased taxation - it’s simple obvious.

      I think without a robot tax and with tariffs and embargoes on particular sectors due to national security risks will bring automated manufacturing sector to the US.

    Companies manufactures cars at the location they intend to sell it at. It’s why Toyotas sold in the US are made right here in the US. Ironically, American cars sold in the US are made in Mexico.

      So, *some* car manufacturers make cars where they intend to sell them.

      No one should be manufacturing anything in China - especially not cars or computers. It’s essentially a national security risk

    It would be nice if the US still had the necessary manufacturing infrastructure. We’ve let that decay over the last 30-40 years. Over that same time span, China has built up an impressive infrastructure from scratch. It’s now unrivaled, really. If you want a custom chip, you make it in China.

    Democratic presidential candidates, take note. To really make America great again, we must invest in infrastructure and education.

    These things pay dividends over the long term. They’re investments, not expenses.

      Yeah Obama and Biden really accelerated the selling out of American manufacturing and TPP was going to be the final nail in the coffin.

      Trump, at the very least, brought this issue to the forefront of national politics. Hillary has given up on it.
