PALO ALTO, U.S. -- Tesla's stock closed at an all-time high on Monday after data showed the U.S. automaker's sales in China bounced back in May.

Earlier in the day, the China Passenger Car Association (CPCA) reported that Tesla delivered 11,095 made-in-China Model 3 vehicles last month -- more than triple the 3,635 sold in April and breaking the previous record of 10,160 units in March.
