United States-based Tesla Motors Inc delivered the first eight of its Model S cars to Chinese customers in Beijing on Tuesday as it pledged to invest "hundreds of millions of dollars" on charging facilities and "hundreds of service centers" in China.

The first eight customers included high-profile individuals such the president of the Lifan football club, Yin Xidi, and the president of the Beijing-based Autohome Inc website Li Xiang.

Elon Musk, founder and CEO of Tesla, said he hoped to form partnerships with companies such as State Grid Corp of China to lay out more charging facilities, "but charging stations can also be run without power utilities. Solar panels can actually work independent of electricity. Our main goal is to make sure the power is sustainable and clean."
