Tesla opens dealership in Xinjiang, China


Tesla has opened a new sales and service center in the Xinjiang region of China, home to a Muslim population known as the Uyghurs whom the United Nations and rights organizations have identified as a repressed ethnic group.

In 2021, the United States, United Kingdom and Canada said China engages in “forced labour, mass detention in internment camps, forced sterilisations” and other abuses against Uyghurs. Separately, the EU imposed sanctions on China for “arbitrary detentions” of Uyghurs.

China has repeatedly dismissed those claims as “lies and disinformation.”

Tesla announced the move last week on Weibo, a popular social media platform in the country. The Wall Street Journal
