On October 25, Tesla Inc. (Tesla) announced on its Sina Weibo account that Tesla Shanghai R&D Center and Tesla Shanghai Gigafactory Data Center are officially complete. They will be put into operation soon.

On October 25, U.S. car rental firm Hertz announced it has ordered 100,000 Tesla Model 3 cars for delivery by the end of 2022, as well as EV chargers, as it invests to build the largest EV rental fleet in North America.
Though no price was given for the order, the Model 3 has a base price of around USD 40,000, implying the order to be worth USD 4 billion.
Hertz emerged from bankruptcy protection in June 2021 and named former Ford CEO Mark Fields as interim CEO in October.
Hertz intends to lead as a mobility company with the largest electric vehicle rental fleet in North America.
Fields says EVs are now mainstream vehicles, and the company is starting to see rising global demand and interest.
Hertz Global Holdings Inc. filed for bankruptcy protection in May 2020 as the COVID-19 pandemic shut down travel on a global scale.

On October 25, Panasonic unveiled a more advanced prototype battery that has five times the storage capacity of current ones, which is expected to deepen business ties with U.S. EV-maker Tesla.
Panasonic this year established a test line in Japan to make the 4680 format, which is a 46 mm (1.6 inches wide) and 80 mm tall battery cell that Tesla says will store more energy, halve battery costs and drive a 100-fold increase in battery production by 2030.
Panasonic's commitment to deepening business ties with Tesla comes as Tesla has been establishing supply contracts with LG Energy Solution and China's Contemporary Amperex Technology Co. (CATL).
While they have been a topic with Tesla, Panasonic has no plans to make cheaper Lithium Iron Phosphate (LFP) EV batteries.
