Tesla has announced a recall of 1.1 million vehicles in China, including imported and domestic models. The recall is due to a software issue that could cause the vehicles to unexpectedly accelerate.
The affected vehicles include the Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y. They were manufactured between January 12, 2019, and April 24, 2023.
Tesla says that the software issue could cause the vehicles to accelerate unexpectedly if the driver presses the accelerator pedal too hard. This could increase the risk of a crash.
Tesla will update the software on the affected vehicles to address the issue. The update will be sent over-the-air, so owners will not need to take their vehicles to a service center.
The recall is Tesla’s largest in China. It is the first time that Tesla has recalled vehicles in China due to a software issue.
Tesla has been facing increasing scrutiny in China in recent months. In March, the company was fined $280,000 for failing to properly disclose information about a safety defect.
The recall is a setback for Tesla, which has been trying to expand its business in China. The company is facing stiff competition from local automakers, such as BYD and Geely.
Tesla has said that it is committed to safety and that it will work to address the issue as quickly as possible. The company has also said that it will provide updates to owners as soon as they are available.
