Tesla Sues US Government Over Tariffs On Chinese Imports

Tesla has reportedly filed a lawsuit against US President Donald Trump’s administration, aiming to end what it calls unlawful tariffs imposed on certain parts imported from China.

The lawsuit, filed Monday in the New York-based Court of International Trade, says the 25 percent tariffs imposed by the US Trade Representative on a list of products including spare parts like terminals Tesla uses in its cars are arbitrary, capricious, and an abuse of discretion.

The tariffs came amid a wider trade dispute between Washington and Beijing, and Tesla seeks their cancelation along with a refund, with interest of duties already paid.

The US and China engaged in months of trade conflict after Trump took office in 2017, and despite a phase one deal signed earlier this year marking a partial truce in the dispute, additional tariffs of 25 percent remain on the equivalent of $250 billion in Chinese goods.
