BEIJING (Reuters) – U.S. electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc’s (O:TSLA) China car registrations jumped 450% in March, month on month, data from auto consultancy LMC Automotive showed.

Overall auto sales in China plunged 43.4% in March, as a coronavirus pandemic continued to depress demand, industry data showed.
