People have noticed the big increase in sales this year for China's new car makers including Nio, Xpeng Motors, and Li Auto, but it's easy to overlook how those groups working directly with consumers are working.

In an article on Wednesday, local media outlet Auto-time used an article to focus on what it's like to be a salesperson for China's new car makers.

After reading the article, you'll see that they each live out CEO Elon Musk's credo perfectly.

Here's what Musk once said:

Work like hell. I mean you just have to put in 80 to 100 hour weeks every week. [This] improves the odds of success.

If other people are putting in 40 hour workweeks and you're putting in 100 hour workweeks, then even if you're doing the same thing, you know that you will achieve in four months what it takes them a year to achieve.
