(Reuters) - Tesla Inc said on Friday it had not received a subpoena from the U.S. Department of Justice regarding production guidance for its Model 3 sedans, in response to a Wall Street Journal story that said the electric carmaker was facing a deeper criminal probe.
A Tesla spokesperson said it had received a voluntary request for documents from the DoJ and the company was cooperative in responding to it.
"We have not received a subpoena, a request for testimony, or any other formal process, and there have been no additional document requests about this from the Department of Justice for months," the Tesla spokesperson said.
