U.S. electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc said via Weibo on Wednesday that it supports standardisation of China auto industry.

Tesla was commenting on China's cyberspace administration's draft rules on auto data regulation, which was published on Wednesday.

The draft rules said automakers need to seek customer approval to collect data from driving and need to get permission from regulators when they need to provide important and private data to foreign entities. The cyberspace administration is seeking public opinions on the rules.
