Tesla recalls nearly 50,000 Model 3s

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) once again forced Tesla to announce a recall campaign. Tesla will recall 48,184 Model 3 electric vehicles in the US, according to released documents. The reason is that in Track Mode the speed is not displayed on the screen.

The recall applies to vehicles manufactured between 2018 and 2022. Tesla will resolve the issue with a remote software update. The company said a firmware update released in December accidentally removed the speed block from the user interface. The vehicles do not meet federal highway safety standards and could increase the risk of an accident if drivers do not know how fast they are traveling, NHTSA officials said.

Tesla had to recall 14,684 Model 3 vehicles in China due to the same issue. But this is just one of the various reviews involving Tesla electric vehicles. NHTSA reports that Tesla has announced a total of 10 recall campaigns this year, covering about 2.1 million vehicles.

We have already reported that the Tesla Model 3 electric car in March of this year became the best-selling model in the European market, not only among electric vehicles, but among all cars, including those with internal combustion engines.
