Tesla enjoys a reputation in the world's largest auto market that makes domestic China brands like NIO green with EnVy.

A greater feat, by Fox News standards, is the government support Tesla enjoys here, helping it hang on to its top status: tax subsidies, and a big boost to reopen its Shanghai plant during the height of the pandemic.

"Not just batteries, but the spiking demand for lithium and other rare-earths that go into the magnet motors. Also, driverless EVs are much closer than people think, with the long tail of software and services that implies."
