Shares of Tesla Motors Inc. (Nasdaq: TSLA) were down this morning on news that the company's sales in China have underperformed due to customer misconceptions over charging requirements. Said CEO Elon Musk: "We had very high sales in the rest of the world, but not China." The firm also announced plans to increase its production of electric cars to "at least a few million a year" by 2025, according to Musk. The company produced roughly 40,000 vehicles in 2014. Despite the boost to production, Musk told an audience in Detroit that the company may not turn a profit until 2020. Shares of Tesla were down more than 9% in pre-market hours.
