Tesla is recalling up to 80,000 electric cars from China due to seat belt issues as well as software bugs. This is reported by Bloomberg.
The recall affects about 70,000 imported Model S, Model X and Model 3 models, as well as 10,000 Chinese-made Model 3s. Model S and Model X will require a software patch to fix a defect in the vehicle’s battery management system that could cause a loss of power. As for the Model 3, they discovered the seat belt buckle.
Tesla urged all Model 3 owners affected by the defect to take their vehicles back for maintenance if necessary, and also urged drivers to be “cautious” on the road.
Earlier, Gazeta.Ru reported that Tesla has announced a recall of 321,000 Model 3 and Model Y electric cars in the United States due to a software bug. According to a company representative, the problem lies in the taillights, which may start to “blink”, causing a false alarm for the fault detection system.
