Electric car-maker Tesla Inc. and soybean farmers would likely feel the most painful sting of China’s threatened retaliatory trade tariffs against the U.S.

Boeing Co. could also be hurt by Beijing’s response to President Donald Trump’s 25% tariffs on up to $50 billion of annual imports from China. It might get off comparatively easy, however, because China’s proposed duties take aim at lighter aircraft and the U.S. aircraft-maker is moving to a generation of heavier jets.
