Tesla touchscreen failures are also being investigated in Germany

on

As we recently reported, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has officially asked Tesla to recall 158,000 Model S and Model X electric vehicles due to an on-board computer problem. This issue affects many of the functions of these vehicles. A computer’s touchscreen becomes less responsive over time, turn-on time increases, the computer freezes and requires a restart, and in some cases it completely fails.

The German Road Transport Authority (KBA) is also looking into the safety risks associated with touchscreen displays in Tesla vehicles, the source said. It has already asked the American automaker to provide information necessary for the investigation.

A KBA spokesman told the Bild am Sonntag newspaper that the German authorities were in contact with the NHTSA and that the KBA had launched its own investigation.
