On March 10, 2019, a Tesla Model S and Model X were displayed in a Hong Kong shopping mall. Tesla, an electric carmaker, has received more than 520 millions USD in loans from Chinese bankers to build its first overseas auto plant near Shanghai. This is the first time a foreign automaker owns a factory wholly in China.
A Chinese regulator ordered the American automaker conduct a re-collection of EVs due to potential risks.
It's not the first time the electric car maker has had brake problems. The phantom brake problem affected many Tesla models in the past, which led to an NHTSA probe.
Tesla was forced to comply with China's recall due to a new problem with brakes and an acceleration issue.

According to reports, the latest Tesla problems involve the EV manufacturer's regenerative braking systems. This system produces electricity when the driver lifts their foot from the accelerator.
SAMR stated that they were referring to the lack of a warning or notification which could inform Tesla drivers when they press too hard on their accelerator.
Tesla has stated that they plan to add or adjust existing notification features in order to fix the problem.
