China bans Tesla electric cars for national security reasons

В China banned Tesla electric cars for national security reasons

Tesla electric cars are equipped with an innovative video surveillance system. In China, they are afraid that secret information may get on the cameras.

In the Chinese resort town of Beidaihe near Beijing, the operation of all Tesla models was banned for two months. Restrictions on electric cars come into force on July 1, according to Reuters.

The information was confirmed by the Beidaihe police, explaining this decision as “national interests”. Law enforcement officers will strictly enforce the ban.

The fact is that it is in Beidaihe that every summer a large meeting of the Chinese Communist Party takes place. Often, classified information is discussed there.

It was Tesla electric cars that were banned for a simple reason – these cars are equipped with the Sentry Mode video surveillance function. Cameras constantly film the area around the car, which helps protect the car from thieves and vandals, as well as capture the moment of the accident on video.

Obviously, China is afraid that secret information will get into the camera lenses. Tesla is an American automaker, and therefore there is a risk that US intelligence agencies will receive the data. Although Elon Musk has repeatedly assured that all videos from Chinese Tesla cameras are stored on local servers.

This is not the first such case – Tesla electric vehicles were no longer allowed to enter certain areas of the city of Chengdu during the visit of Chinese leader Xi Jinping there.< /p>
