Sources said that officials at two government agencies in Beijing and Shanghai received verbal instructions by supervisors not to park their Tesla electric cars inside government compounds due to security concerns about the cameras installed on the vehicles, CNBC quoted Reuters.
It was not immediately clear whether all government offices in Beijing had imposed such restrictions, nor whether the measure was a government order or a move adopted by agency officials.
It is also unclear whether the restrictions apply to state agencies across the country.
While sensors and cameras that can aid driving are an advantage in many automaker's cars, people familiar with the matter said the restrictions currently only apply to Tesla cars.
Reuters quoted sources at the time that Tesla cars were prevented in March from entering some military complexes in China.
The restriction provides a fresh indication of China's continued wary of the US EV maker amid tensions with Washington.
