According to Bloomberg News, due to technical problems with the car emergency system, the German auto regulator has asked Tesla to recall its Model Y and Model 3 models.
The German Motor Transport Authority can only order the recall of cars in Germany but says on its website that more than 59,000 Tesla Model Y and Model 3 vehicles will be affected worldwide.
The German Motor Transport Authority found a malfunction in the emergency system on both models, which was supposed to automatically call the relevant emergency hotline in the event of a serious accident. Affected owners were told to call the manufacturer or drive to an authorized repair shop for a software update.
The notice was issued on June 29 and reported by Radio Berlin-Brandenburg on Saturday. The affected cars were produced this year. According to RBB, that includes Model Y cars built at the Berlin plant. In May this year, Tesla filed a recall plan with the State Administration for Market Regulation.
From May 23, 2022, some domestic Model 3 and Model Y electric vehicles with production dates from October 19, 2021, to April 26, 2022, a total of 107,293 vehicles, will be recalled because of the central processing unit may overheat and restart. It is unclear whether the latest recall will affect Model Y and Model 3 vehicles sold domestically.
