The U.S. trade representative's office has reportedly denied electric car maker Tesla's requests to waive tariffs on the car company's China-made center screen and car computer on its Model 3.
The office previously denied a waiver request for Tesla's autopilot "brain" in May. The automaker is seeking exemptions from the 25% tariffs imposed on certain imports from China by the Trump administration.
Tesla's shares dropped about 1% immediately following the report before rebounding to trade roughly 1.5% higher for the day.
Tesla has stated that it expects to produce and deliver between 90,000 and 100,000 vehicles this quarter. The automaker has been building a factory in China for its Model 3.
Requests for comment to the U.S. trade representative's office and to Tesla were not immediately returned.
