China Is Currently Holding 1,600 Teslas at Customs

By Wei Yiyang, Huang Shulun, Zhao Runhua / Mar 05, 2019 08:11 PM / Business & Tech

Hopefully you’re not waiting on a shipment of Teslas.

Shanghai Customs is currently holding 1,600 of the brand’s Model 3 cars, after some of the vehicles lacked product labels that would make them legal on the Chinese market.

Some of the vehicles had no Chinese labels on brake fluid tanks, while some demonstrated a real motor capacity that differed from the one on the label, according to the General Administration of Customs (GAC).

As a result, GAC issued a notice forbidding companies from selling any Tesla Model 3 already in China, for the purpose of further inspection. Any additional Tesla models entering China will also be rigorously checked.

Tesla pointed the blame at “incorrect settings on its printers” and “workers’ poor operation.” The company is now working with the Chinese government to look for solutions.

GAC has invited two third-party institutions to evaluate possible remedies.
