Recently, Tesla announced a recall of 1.1 million vehicles in the United States due to a quality problem with the automatic window reversal system.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Tesla's recall includes all models on sale, including: some 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2021 Model Y and 2021- 2022 Model S and Model X vehicles.
While there have been no incidents and claims related to this failure, the failure of the automatic window reversal system to identify obstacles could result in the driver or passenger being squeezed by the power windows, posing a risk of occupant injury.These 1.1 million vehicles do not meet the relevant safety standards, and Tesla will perform OTA upgrades to the vehicle systems to solve the related problems.
Tesla said that during product testing in August, employees found that the automatic window reversal system was "less sensitive" to the pinch point. Starting on September 13, Tesla willSoftware upgrades are performed on both production and pre-delivery vehicles to set the operation of the power windows as required.
Domestic, Tesla has not initiated a recall recently.
According to the passenger car recall data in the first half of 2022, Tesla recalled a total of 276,000 vehicles from January to June, accounting for nearly 90% of the total recalls of new energy vehicles, and most of them were related to system software failures.What Tesla is best at is software technology. The large proportion of Tesla recalls also shows a problem. Its technical level cannot guarantee the safety of car owners at present.Before that, Musk has repeatedly touted his FSD self-driving system as being safer than a driver.
In the first half of the year, the sales of new energy vehicles in my country reached 2.6 million, and the market penetration rate jumped to 21.6%. The market is still optimistic, but the recall of new energy vehicles in the first half of the year also reached 310,000. There is still a lot of room for improvement in quality issues.
