Tesla said it has launched a data center in China, in line with the company's plan for the local market. The manufacturer was able to build and launch it one month ahead of its own deadline.
Tesla said on Tuesday on Weibo that it has set up a data center in China. The new data center will store information collected from cars sold in the country, which should reassure local authorities and residents of the country. Tesla has always reliably protected the data of its customers, but China prefers that all data received by the company's cars in the country remain in the country. The company said it will store all information collected here at a local data center. Such a move testifies to Tesla's deep interaction with the authorities in China.
The reason for the construction of a data center in the country was that the Chinese military banned the use of Tesla vehicles at their facilities. Tesla is not the only manufacturer to fall under such a ban. Even the local automakers that make smart cars like NIO and Xpeng have been similarly banned.
The opening of the data center in May followed after the company said at the end of April that it would open it by the end of June. In fact, Tesla was able to deliver on its commitments one month ahead of schedule, which shows deep respect for local requirements and a commitment to meet them as quickly as possible.
