Tesla disputes Chinese recall of almost 30,000 cars – report

Tesla has reportedly challenged a recall for almost 30,000 American-made Model X and Model S cars imported into China, disputing claims there is an issue with the vehicles' suspension and instead blaming the problem on "driver abuse". The recall, lodged with China's State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) by Tesla Motor's Beijing arm, apparently affects Model X and S cars produced between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018, and imported into China.

Images of new Ford Equator surface online in China

Images of the new seven-seater Ford Equator have emerged online ahead of the model's release. The Chinese-market SUV cements the styling themes for JMC-Ford – the Blue Oval's joint venture in the country – which looks to be an evolution of the design language seen on other models from the company. The pictures were posted on the social media website Weibo, along with what appears to be internal Ford documents outlining the model's specifications.
