Tesla's China Business 

There is no doubt that Tesla has a huge opportunity to capitalze in China.

"China’s Association of Automobile Manufacturers (CAAM) reports that China sales of EVs [electric vehicles] grew 60% last year, reaching 1.26 million units," according to Electronics Weekly.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk tweeted his plans Jan. 7 before the U.S. and China trade dispute escalated. 

One of the most significant impacts of the Sino-American trade war has been on the automotive industry. The question now: how will the trade spat affect Tesla? 

Tesla stock was up 0.46 percent at $213.86 at the time of publication Tuesday.
