However, despite indicating the tentative timeline, Musk did not provide any further details in his tweet. Meanwhile, with Musk's announcement about Model S Plaid's China launch, Tesla's stock jumped as much as six per cent on Monday.

Speaking about the Tesla Model S Plaid, the EV manufacturer launched this car earlier this year in September, which offers an 836 km range on a single charge. Also, the Tesla Model S Plaid pure electric sedan can run at a top speed of 320 kmph. Deliveries of the Tesla Model S Plaid have already commenced and grabbed pretty much attention in the US market.

The $130,000 electric sedan is capable of sprinting 0-96 kmph in less than two seconds. It comes with a redesigned steering wheel in shape of a yoke, instead of a conventional wheel. However, this feature comes as an option for the interested customers. Buyers who want a traditional steering wheel gets so. Tesla Model S Plaid also comes with inbuilt speakers that can create sound just like a traditional internal combustion engine powered car.

Tesla with the Shanghai Gigafactory running in China is already manufacturing and selling its models such as Model 3 and Model Y in the country. With launch of Tesla Model S Plaid, the US automaker aims to increase its market share in the country, which is known for being the largest marketplace for new energy vehicles.
