Different: Tesla makes China the highest-profile head of government after Musk

Jan 3 (Reuters) - Chinese Tesla Inc (TSLA.O) chief Tom Zhu has been promoted to take direct oversight of the electric carmaker's U.S.

Tesla's post confirmed that Zhu's name as vice president for more China had not changed and that he also retained his duties as Tesla's chief

The move makes Zhu the highest-profile government at Tesla after CEO Elon Musk, with direct oversight of deliveries in all its core markets

The reporting pressures for Zhu would keep Tesla's vehicle design and development, both areas Musk has been very concerned with,

Musk in the nearer-term challenges of dealing with international income and production.

Reuters reviewed the organization chart that was published internally with Tesla and confirmed the change with two people who had seen it

They have now asked not to be named because they have not been authorized to discuss the issue.

Zhu and a group of his reviews of him filed through Tesla late last year to fix production problems in the United States
