REFILE-Tesla China sales drop sharply in October - auto industry body

(Fixes typo in headline)

BEIJING/SHANGHAI, Nov 27 (Reuters) - Tesla Inc sold just 211 cars in China last month, a sharp drop versus a year ago, the country’s passenger car association told Reuters on Tuesday, underscoring how the Sino-U.S. trade war is hurting the electric carmaker.

A China Passenger Car Association official, one of the top industry bodies, said its data showed Tesla car sales in the world’s largest auto market fell 70 percent in October versus the year earlier period. The wider auto market has also slowed.

Tesla did not respond to repeated calls and written requests for comment on Tuesday. (Reporting by Yilei Sun and Adam Jourdan; Editing by Himani Sarkar)
