The automaker has solved its problem of being identified as a security risk by changing the way it handles data from its cars in China, and that has also opened the door to the possibility of its fully self-driving system being approved for deployment in the country.

This came after CEO Elon Musk visited the country and met with a few high-level government officials.

We have now learned that the Jiangsu provincial government has approved the Chinese-made Tesla Model Y as a government vehicle.

That means any level of government in Jiangsu, a province of 85 million people and the richest per capita in China, can buy Tesla Model Y cars.

There was some public objection to the announcement in China, but the government stressed that it only applies to Tesla Model Y cars made by the automaker in China.
