Musk said on his official Twitter account. China's southern neighbour has already laid out aggressive electric mobility plans and Tesla has always been in the scheme of things.

But since Tesla announced plans for the factory on land outside Shanghai's urban core, the outlook for China's consumer market has turned worrisome.

The shareholders' motion references reports that Musk was in the presence of Grimes and Banks about the time he posted the tweet that sparked a total shitshow and led to Musk resigning as Tesla's chairman and a $US20 million ($28 million) SEC fine.

Tesla's Shanghai venture comes as USA companies face pressure from President Donald Trump to keep manufacturing jobs at home, and as Beijing and Washington persist with a trade spat that has seen both sides levy tariffs on hundreds of billions of dollars of products.

A local plant will help Tesla lower prices in the market to compete with a new generation of local rivals including Nio, Byton and XPeng Motors.

China raised the import tariff on US-made cars to 40% in July, but cut it back to 15% from the start of this year as part of a ceasefire in a trade war with the US.

Lawyers for investors in this case said both she and her "current or former" friend, U.S. rapper Azealia Banks, were "in direct contact with Musk in the hours and days following the tweet" and might have evidence which was in danger of being destroyed because it was likely to be stored electronically, such as on social media. "All Model S/X & higher cost versions of Model 3/Y will still be built in U.S. for WW market, incl China", he later added, referring to the worldwide market including China.

On Instagram, Banks posted remarks from Kristy's filing challenging her credibility and said "this is going to get extremely ugly".

The so-called Gigafactory would also be China's first wholly foreign-owned vehicle plant, a reflection of China's broader shift to open up its auto market even amid a whipsawing trade war between Washington and Beijing.

Electric auto maker Tesla CEO Elon Musk on Monday said he was set to lay the foundation of a Tesla Gigafactory in China that is expected to produce 500,000 electric vehicles per year - doubling the production capacity of Tesla.

He has further detailed, that the electric vehicle maker is aiming to finish initial construction this summer, and will start Model 3 production by the end of year.

China is the largest market for electric vehicles, and most forecasters predict EV sales in the country will accelerate rapidly as government regulation drives toward a goal of 100 percent electric vehicles by 2030.
