Tesla’s China President Resigns After Less Than 9 Months

Tesla Motors Inc., the electric-car manufacturer led by billionaire Elon Musk, said its top manager in China is leaving the company.

Tesla China President Veronica Wu has resigned, said Richard Lan, a Beijing-based company official, declining to disclose when her last day will be. Tom Zhu, who now heads the carmaker’s charging network development in China, will assume operational leadership in the country, Tesla said in an e-mailed statement. Wu didn’t immediately respond to calls and text messages to her mobile phone.
