"I am against import duties in general, but the current rules make things very hard", Musk said in another post.

Tesla has been pushing hard to build cars in China, the world's largest auto market, but has hit roadblocks in negotiations with local authorities, in part because Musk is keen to keep full control of any local venture.

He also noted that the Chinese government forces foreign automakers that want to manufacture cars in the country to partner with a local auto company. "Just want a fair outcome, ideally where tariffs/rules are equally moderate". He didn't say that the tunnels would never support cars, but he believes that surrounding communities will benefit most if the Boring Company focuses on mass transportation. A spokesman for Boring Co. didn't immediately respond to a request for comment.
