Tesla Takes Customers to Court to Silence Its Critics in China.

Tesla’s anxiety about safeguarding its brand among Chinese buyers comes at a time when the country’s EV market is heating up dramatically, with respected domestic brands such as Nio Inc. and Xpeng Inc.vying for sales with a range of other up-and-comers, including Volkswagen AG’s increasingly successful ID line. While Tesla is still the market leader, it can ill afford bad news.

“It’s a fiercely competitive EV market in China,” says Daniel Ives, a senior analyst at Wedbush Securities Inc. in New York. “Brand reputation is how Musk built Tesla into a trillion-dollar market cap and stalwart today, and it will defend itself with all legal means.” —Charlie Zhu, Chunying Zhang, and Matthew Campbell
