“Tesla China is a company that is based here and must comply with all Chinese laws and regulations,” said Grace Tao, head of communications and affairs for Tesla’s government in the People’s Republic, told an Indian business website.

And the news shouldn’t shock anyone at all, Tesla has now promised that whatever data its cars collect in China will remain in the country, Indian business website Mint reported on Tuesday. There are concerns, then, that these chambers of all-electric vehicles may record sensitive information and data in the communist nation.

The news comes now, and after Tesla cars were banned from Chinese military facilities in March for concerns about data collection, even though the automaker said its vehicles’ built-in cameras are disabled outside North America.

Tesla does not have a public relations department for requests for comment in this context. China is an extremely important market for Tesla, in fact, for virtually all car manufacturers.

Tesla promises that data collected will stay in China

Operating in the most populous nation on Earth, and with a middle class that is estimated to be about 400 million people, or more than the entire population of the USA, it is a must for any automotive company with global ambitions. But whether China, Chile, Canada or Cameroon, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has no choice but to comply with local rules to sell his cars.

She added that any information collected in the country will be well protected. “Chinese data will be stored in China.” The Chinese government is concerned about the collection of sensitive information by the cameras of Elon Musk’s all-electric vehicles. Chinese data will be stored in China, says Tesla.
