Tesla faces yet another vehicle recall in China as 14,684 locally made and imported Model 3 cars have problems with software that could lead to collisions.
Tesla will recall the Model 3 Performance cars manufactured between January 2019 and March 2022, comprising 1,850 imported cars and 12,834 made in China, according to the State Administration for Market Regulation.
The cars being recalled could mislead drivers and lead to collisions under extreme circumstances, the regulator said. A readout is missing a unit of speed, it noted.
The regulator said earlier in April that the electric vehicle maker would recall 127,785 units of Model 3 cars for potential faults in semiconductor components that might lead to collisions.
Tesla declined to comment on the regulator’s announcements.
Tesla has been under increased pressure in China from regulators and state media after protests by a disgruntled customer at the Shanghai auto show went viral last year.
