American electric vehicle and clean energy company Tesla has reportedly set up an insurance broking firm in China to offer insurance to Tesla owners in the country.

According to a report by China Daily, the new company was listed on the National Enterprise Credit Information Publicity System of China, with a principal capital of CNY50m ($7.2m).

It is registered in Lingang New Area of China (Shanghai) Pilot Free Trade Zone, where the Tesla ‘Gigafactory’ is located.

The filing reportedly named Tesla global vice-president and Tesla China head Zhu Xiaotongas legal representative of the insurance brokerage company, which is 100% owned by Tesla Motors HK.

As per the regulatory filing, the brokerage was established on 6 Aug and it can operate through 5 Aug 2050.

Last year, Tesla launched its insurance offering in California, US. The company partnered with State National Insurance Company, a subsidiary of Markel, to roll out the motor insurance product.
