Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) sold 25,845 locally made vehicles in China in April, down 27% from March, a possible reaction to increased scrutiny on the electric vehicle manufacturer from the Chinese government. The April number, though down from 35,478 vehicles sold in China in March, is well above January's 15,484 vehicles sold and February's 18,318. Tesla has come under fire from Chinese state-run media and government agencies in recent months, beginning with criticism from the Chinese military about data being collected on vehicle cameras and sensors.
