Tesla recalls more than 80,000 cars in China over software, seatbelt issues
Tesla is recalling a substantial 1.6 million electric cars in China due to safety concerns related to steering and door-lock functions that pose a risk of crashes. The company plans to address these issues through remote software updates. The faulty assisted steering function in high-tech motors and door control issues, where a collision could unlock the unhit side’s door, are the identified problems. This recall impacts various Tesla models, including the Model S, Model 3, Model X, and Model Y.
China, a significant market for Tesla, is home to a problematic manufacturing plant in Shanghai. Despite challenges, Elon Musk has elevated Tesla’s reputation in electric cars and battery technologies. The luxury electric vehicles, praised for their role in the clean energy revolution, hold the title of the best-selling electric cars in the UK, albeit at a high cost. The recall affects both imported and domestically produced Tesla vehicles with production dates spanning from August 26, 2014, to December 20, 2023. This situation adds a layer of complexity for Musk in managing the company’s presence in China.
