Tesla recalls 128,000 cars in China due to collision risks

Tesla recalls 128,000 cars in China due to collision risks

US electric car maker Tesla is recalling nearly 128,000 vehicles in China due to a fault that could lead to collisions. The Chinese regulator announced this.

Vehicles affected by the recall in China have a “minor manufacturing defect” on a part of the inverter that controls battery power and the electric motor, the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR) reports. “In extreme cases, this increases the risk of an accident and could pose a danger,” the statement said.

The recall concerns a Tesla Model 3, which was manufactured between 2019 and 2022. The action affects approximately 128,000 vehicles, including 93,578 built at Tesla’s Shanghai plant.

Tesla has faced many complaints on social networks in China over alleged quality and service issues in recent months. In December, Tesla recalled nearly 200,000 cars in China for faulty trunks.

China is the main market for the brand. Elon Musk built a massive factory in Shanghai in 2019, and a quarter of its total production is sold in the country.
