Tesla recalls over 300,000 cars — RT Business News

Elon Musk’s electric vehicle maker Tesla is recalling about 321,000 cars in the United States due to potential taillight failure, media reports, citing the company’s filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released Saturday.

According to the filing, there have been no reported crashes or injuries so far, but Tesla has received several complaints from customers claiming the taillights weren’t working.

The company reportedly decided to provide an over-the-air update to fix the issue.

The recall will affect 2023 Tesla Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y cars.

Earlier this week, Tesla recalled about 30,000 Model X cars due to a potential issue with the front passenger side airbag, which may inflate incorrectly. That sent Tesla shares down nearly 3% on Friday to their lowest level in nearly two years. Prior to that, it also recalled approximately 40,000 Model S and Model X cars due to loss of power steering assistance.

Overall, Tesla has so far reported 19 vehicle recalls in 2022, affecting about 3.7 million vehicles, according to NHTSA data.
