Tesla recalls 326,000 vehicles: Know the Reasons

Almost after one and a half year the start of an investigation by the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration), Tesla has just carried out a massive recall of 362,000 vehicles in the United States.

At stake is a concern about the reliability of the autonomous driving system (FSD beta), which the NHTSA suspects to be the cause of several accidents, some of which were fatal. For the US administration, Tesla’s autopilot allows “exceeding speed limits or crossing intersections illegally, or unpredictably, that increases the risk of an accident”.

Playing with caution, Tesla has therefore chosen to recall the vehicles for an update of its autopilot software, correcting the most sensitive points. The manufacturer further stated that “it is not aware of any injuries or fatalities that may be related to the recall”, a statement that seems at least dire knowing that NHTSA is still investigating several reports of accidents that occurred in recent years.

Tesla vehicles affected by the recall are Model S (2016-2023), Model X (2017-2023), Model 3 and Model Y (2020-2023) with FSD Beta software installed or awaiting installation.
