Update 01 December 2022
The Tesla recall series is far from ending. Adding to the recent recalls in China, the company says another 435,000 Tesla electric cars in China are affected. The issue is a possibly faulty lighting system but can be fixed with a software update. Specifically, 142,277 Model 3 and 292,855 Model Y are affected.
The recalls in China follow a string of incidents in the US, where Tesla issued 19 recall campaigns this year. Most were solved with an OTA update; however, the NHTSA insists on manufacturers issuing official recalls either way.
