Shenma Zhuanche, a high-end ride-hailing platform, has recently made a statement about the electric vehicle manufacturer Tesla. The platform claims that issues with Tesla's vehicles have cost them nearly $1 million to fix.
Shenma currently has around 280 Tesla cars in their fleet and the company claims they are the biggest purchaser of Tesla's car within the Asia-Pacific region. In a recent blog post the company said that around 20% of the Teslas they own have run into some form of electromechanical problems.
They also claimed that Tesla's post-sales service hasn't helped much and the lack of help has affected Shenma's overall services as they see repairs and maintenance needs that usually last around 45 days.
The company also says Tesla doesn't have enough service stations or even spare parts within China to speed up repairs.
Shenma has decided to even put up three ads in Times Square in New York City to help garner attention to their problems.
This follows other issues facing Tesla within China. Recently one of their cars exploded in a parking lot in Shanghai and shortly afterward a hashtag went viral on blogging site Weibo about the incident.
Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, tweeted out that his company's cars are safe and claimed that regular cars see "over a million" fires every year.
Shenma's claim along with the fire and explosion is coming as Tesla faces several overall issues. The company has been trying to increase their vehicle sales within China, they recently announced they didn't reach their revenue targets, and their stock price has started to fall.
Shenma is a higher end ride-hailing platform which operates entirely with clean energy cars including BMW and Tesla.
