Tesla cars banned in Chinese town of Beidaihe for two months.

Chinese authorities don’t want the cameras on Tesla vehicles to catch anything related to the secretive annual meeting of China's senior leaders.

Tesla cars have been banned from entering the Chinese coastal district of Beidaihe for two months starting on July 1 over concerns about spying amid a secretive annual meeting of the country’s leadership.

Beidaihe, a beach resort east of Beijing, traditionally hosts a summer conclave of China’s senior leaders where they discuss personnel moves and policy ideas behind closed doors. China does not typically formally announce the dates for the meeting.

The authorities didn’t comment on the reason behind the ban. However, the assumption is that they don’t want the cameras on Tesla vehicles to catch anything related to the meeting.

This is not the first time Tesla EVs have been banned from entering any area. A few weeks ago, Tesla cars were also barred from driving onto some roads in the central city of Chengdu in early June, which coincided with Chinese President Xi Jinping’s visit to the town.
