BEIJING, Feb. 23 (UPI) -- A Chinese start-up is being quite generous with their year-end bonuses for employees, offering a Tesla to anyone who's worked there for at least four months.

The move will cost the company, translated as WiFi Master Key, over $4 million. Dozens of employees at the company meet the minimum requirement to get a car.

The CEO of Shanda was quoted saying Tesla is a "new and innovative" company appreciated by many in the technology world. The Chinese new year started on Thursday.
