Four Chinese Regulators Meet With Tesla, Urge Company To "Operate According To China Law" It was only about 3 weeks ago that we published a piece called "Elon Musk's Chinese Fairy Tale Will Eventually Come To An End". The purpose of the piece was to reiterate what we have been saying for months: that Elon Musk's fairy tale with the Chinese government would eventually, as all relationships with the CCP do, come to an end. Just ask Jack Ma. We were baffled that Musk had been able to hold it together even this long in China, given Tesla's short history there: So far, Musk has been able to sidestep some ugly press in China, including out of control Tesla vehicles, forced recalls, constant price cuts and disgruntled customers. So far, Musk is holding it together in China. But then we asked, "How long can the good times last?" The answer, it appears, may be "about 3 weeks". That's because shares of Tesla were sliding in pre-market trading on Monday after Bloomberg reported that "China's market regulator has undertaken meetings with Tesla regarding quality issues". Apparently, the Chinese government doesn't seem to like its citizens driving around in vehicles that need to be recalled, run out of control on Chinese streets or randomly explode while sitting in parking garages. Go figure. The headlines that hit the terminal on Monday morning included: TESLA INTERVIEWED BY CHINA SAMR, FOUR OTHER DEPARTMENTS CHINA'S INDUSTRY MINISTRY, TRANSPORTATION MINISTRY, CYBERSECURITY AGENCY AND EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT MINISTRY URGE TESLA TO OPERATE ACCORDING TO CHINA LAW Tesla shares slipped on the news, before reversing course after it was disclosed that the company had bought $1.5 billion in Bitcoin. And so, once again, operational mishaps and product challenges are discounted from the stock price in favor of whatever the newest, non-production or manufacturing-related dog and pony show is. https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/tesla-urged-operate-according-china-law-four-separate-ccp-agencies
