China limiting use of Tesla vehicles - report

China’s government is limiting the use of Tesla's vehicles among members of the country's military and state employees over spying concerns, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday citing sources familiar with the matter.

According to the report, Beijing is concerned that Tesla cars might be a source of national security leaks after a government review found that the vehicles' sensors can record images of surrounding locations and potentially send them back to the US. Additionally, Tesla is able to obtain personal information on its drivers, the sources added.

The government reportedly began informing agencies to restrict their employees' use of Tesla vehicles, particularly among those working in sensitive industries.
