Tesla cars will be prohibited from entering the Chinese coastal district of Beidaihe, site of a secretive annual summer party leadership conclave, for at least two months starting on July 1, a local traffic police official told Reuters on Monday.

Last year, the Chinese military banned Tesla cars from entering its complexes, citing security concerns over cameras installed on the vehicles, Reuters reported at the time citing sources who had seen the directive.

I think that’s a reasonable security concern.

They also catch on fire

Seriously, any EV can be fairly trivially converted to a carbomb. All it takes is bypassing the battery protection circuitry and you’ve got a source of unquenchable fire and explosive hydrogen and organic solvants! Many lithium ion batteries even spew out hydroflouric acid (you know, the chemical they used in Breaking Bad to dissolve dead bodies) as a breakdown product. I don’t know how doable it is by your average person, but it would be child’s play for the CIA or Tesla itself to rig one to blow up.

"Hmm, I’d have to freeze it afterwards for this to work…"

I have changed it. Thanks for pointing that out. I wasn’t considering the implications when I wrote it, and that was my mistake.
