Tesla Recalls 11 Lakh US Vehicles Over Automatic Window Reversal System; Report

Tesla, the corporate which is thought for offering among the finest electric cars across the globe and is owned by Elon Musk has recalled around 11 lakh US vehicles after a difficulty was reported with the automated reverse system of the window. In keeping with the reports, the automated reversal system was not reacting accurately after it noticed any obstruction. This was increasing the danger of injury and that’s the reason the corporate has decided to recall the vehicles and get them fixed.

Tesla has informed National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it is going to roll out an OTA (over-the-air) update for the affected system. The models that are called by the corporate include Model 3 2017-2022, Model Y 2020-2022, Model 4, and Model X from 2021-2022.

“Tesla said that it was not aware of any warranty claims, field reports, crashes, injuries, or deaths related to the recall. NHTSA said a closing window without the right automatic reversing system may exert excessive force by pinching a driver or passenger before retracting, increasing the danger of injury,” reads a Reuters report.

Moreover, the report claims that NHTSA suggests that the vehicles weren’t complying with the federal motorized vehicle safety standard. During testing a Tesla worker has recently found out that the automated window reversal system isn’t working.

On September 13 all of the vehicles in production and pre-delivery received the software update to repair the problem. As per the corporate, the pinch detection and retraction performance weren’t in-line with the necessities of automatic reversal system. Nevertheless, the problem has been addressed and now vehicles shall be fixed by Tesla.
