This is a massive investment in the most import car market in the world.  And they are preparing for the future as I would expect.  In addition to offering 30% EVs to their new lineup, they are working with Baidu (BIDU), China’s Google search engine equivalent, to develop autonomous vehicles.  To me, this is a Wealth Explosion.
