The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) asked Tesla to recall 158,000 Model S and Model X over potential safety risks from touchscreen displays not working. Tesla must respond to NHTSA by tomorrow or, if it does not agree, must provide the agency “with a full explanation of its decision.”

Update 03 February 2021: Tesla is now officially recalling nearly 135,000 Model S and Model X vehicles in North America – voluntarily, as they say. Tesla is thus complying with the above-mentioned request by the NHTSA, which had demanded a recall due to a defect in the infotainment unit (Media Control Unit) that posed a safety risk.
There is apparently also a corresponding recall in the UK. The German KBA, which had also requested information from Tesla because of the problem, has not yet published a corresponding recall in its database.
