At the same time, the Customs at the import ports of automobiles should strengthen the inspection of other imported models manufactured by Tesla Company of the United States.
The above picture is a warning notice about Tesla, which has not been confirmed by Tesla.
A source confirmed this to the Daily Economic News. But Tianjin Customs told reporters: We have not received this notification yet. In addition, a sales staff member of Tesla Experience Store told reporters that he had not received the above notification, and that Tesla still had to wait two to three months from booking to picking up the car.
