BEIJING: According to a statement released by the Chinese market regulator on Friday, Tesla Inc. is recalling more than 80,000 cars made in China and imported from abroad that were manufactured as early as 2013 due to software and seat belt problems.
Due to software issues with the battery management system, the U.S.-based electric car manufacturer has recalled 67,698 Model S and Model X vehicles shipped to China between September 25, 2013, and November 21, 2020.
Tesla announced that it would update the software in the recalled cars.
Additionally, Tesla recalled 10,127 identical Model 3 vehicles created in China between October 14, 2019, and September 26, 2022, as well as 2,736 imported Model 3 vehicles produced between January and November 2019.
According to Tesla, this was caused by potentially flawed seat belt installation, which it will inspect and fix.
Tesla recalled a total of 127,785 Model 3 vehicles in China in April due to possible collision-causing defects in semiconductor components.
