Recall for more than a million Tesla in the United States

Recall for more than a million Tesla in the United States

Electric car maker Tesla must install a software update for around 1.1 million vehicles. There is a risk of compression.

The Federal Highway and Motor Vehicle Safety Authority (NHTSA) pointed out a fault in several Tesla models with the automatic closing system of the windows: drivers risk pinching their fingers.

Tesla cars (like cars from other brands) have a sensor system that automatically detects resistance and prevents the windows from closing. However, in some Model 3, Y, S and X vehicles, this resistance is not always reliably detected, NHTSA warned. Tesla said the company is not aware of any accidents or injuries resulting from the malfunction.

The problem should now be resolved with a software update. Affected vehicle owners will be notified from November 15. Tesla already had to launch several such memories in the United States this year.

For a long time, the company has been running software updates without notifying owners or regulators. In recent months, however, Tesla has become the target of NHTSA. The regulatory authorities launched an investigation after several collisions between Teslas and emergency vehicles.
