During a shareholder meeting in June, Tesla released a teasing image of the Model Y that has left much to the imagination, which makes sense as the SUV is still undergoing its final design.
Musk said faulty robots and "naive" designers contributed to Tesla's production problems.
In 2017 sales of electric and hybrid cars were responsible for more than half of new registrations in Norway, a record aided by the subsidies. "This is not to say that there aren't real issues that need to be dealt with at Tesla or that we've made no mistakes with any of the 40,000 people who work at our company".
Former Tesla employee Martin Tripp has filed a whistleblower tip with the Securities and Exchange Commission in which he alleges the company lied about Model 3 production numbers and put unsafe batteries in its cars, The Washington Post reports.
The company plans to build its second plant, with a capacity to produce 500,000 cars a year, in Shanghai.
Of course, Mr Musk is far from the first American tech entrepreneur to jet into China for 72 hours and pen a love letter to the country.
Tesla follows Harley-Davidson Inc in charting plans to expand outside the U.S. to circumvent tariffs under Mr Trump's escalating trade disputes.
"Tesla is deeply committed to the Chinese market, and we look forward to building even more cars for our customers here", the company said in its emailed statement.

"We thought it would be good, but it was not good".
The move triggered immediate and dollar-for-dollar retaliation by China. "I think it's really coincidental".
Additionally, Tesla is gaining popularity in China.
Levy said hopefully the trade spat would be resolved by early next year, but "by putting a plant in China it prevents future tariff increases from being impactful".
The Bloomberg Businessweek report adds that workers were also provided with free Red Bull so they could power through the harsh conditions associated with the Model 3 production.
Opting for the Model 3 dual-motor vehicle would add $5000 [£3800] to the $35,000 [£26,650] starting price of the entry-level Model 3 in the US, Musk said, and would allow the auto to reach 0-60mph in 4.5sec, with a 140mph top speed and 310-mile driving range.
Domestic and foreign automakers have been racing to grab a piece of the Chinese electric-car sector, which is expected to continue to grow rapidly as the government pushes cleaner technologies, partly to help combat chronic air pollution.
