Clearance was held up after Chinese customs discovered misprinted labels on certain Model 3 cars.

Local business weekly Caixin reported Tuesday that China's customs administration had suspended imports of its Model 3 cars and was holding more than 1,600 of the vehicles - briefly sending Tesla's stock tumbling in the US.

Musk has played up the support Tesla is getting from Chinese authorities as the company invests in the country's first wholly foreign-owned auto plant in Shanghai, due to come online later this year.

The U.S. electric carmaker broke ground on the Shanghai factory in January and its CEO Elon Musk has said the firm aims to finish initial construction this summer and start production of the Model 3 toward the end of the year.

"The strategy of Tesla is to enter at the high end of the market, where customers are prepared to pay a premium, and then drive down market as fast as possible to higher unit volume and lower prices with each successive model", Musk said at the time.
