SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Tesla Motors Inc (TSLA.O: Quote) could begin producing cars in China in two years, chief executive Elon Musk said.

Local production could reduce the sales price of Tesla models in China by around a third, according to a transcript of his remarks at a Tsinghua University event in Beijing that was posted on the company's official blog late on Thursday.
