Elon Musk broke into his fun dancing moves at the launch of Tesla's Model Y electric sports utility vehicle programme at its new Shanghai factory on Tuesday, where the company delivered its first cars built outside the United States to the public.
The 48-year-old Tesla founder and CEO, Musk shook a leg in front of the crowd that included Tesla China employees, journalists and politicians. In the video, Musk can be seen dancing enthusiastically on stage at the event. Later, Musk also stripped off his jacket and flung it aside to reveal a T-shirt with a cartoon of the factory.
The ceremony was attended by Shanghai Mayor Ying Yong and other senior government officials.
The $2 billion Tesla Inc factory started delivering cars in just 357 days, a record for global automakers in China. The first 10 customers from the public received their China-made Model 3 sedans on Tuesday.
Tesla's shares are trading close to their record high after it beat Wall Street estimates for vehicle deliveries in its fourth quarter. News of production ramp-up in its China factory and upbeat early deposits for its recently launched pickup truck have also supported its share price.
Construction of Tesla's first plant outside the United States began in January and production started in October.
