Tesla recalled about 128,000 vehicles in early April due to component failure, then around 15,000 at the end of last month due to a software issue. Tesla faced a series of complaints on social media last year for alleged quality and service issues in China.

In April 2021, a disgruntled customer demonstration at the Shanghai Auto Show sparked a wave of criticism against the brand. Perched on the roof of a Tesla, he claimed to have nearly died from a malfunction in his braking system. The images had gone viral. China is the most important market for the brand. Elon Musk’s company built a huge factory there in Shanghai in 2019, and a quarter of its total production is sold in the country.

But the confinement of China’s economic capital due to the Covid-19 pandemic has had serious consequences for the brand: Tesla was forced to suspend production for three weeks in April. The American manufacturer sent a new shipment of 4,000 cars produced in Shanghai on Sunday to Belgium, according to the official New China news agency.
