Tesla recalls nearly 300,000 cars. The company says it has been told about problems with tail lights.
Tesla, an electric car company owned by Elon Musk, is recalling about 321,000 cars in the US because the back lights could stop working, according to a company filing with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that was made public on Saturday.
So far, the problem hasn’t been linked to any accidents or injuries, according to the document, but Tesla has heard from several customers who say their tail lights don’t work.
It is said that the company decided to fix the problem by releasing a wireless update.
Cars made by Tesla in 2020, 2021, 2022, and 2023 will be affected by the recall.
This week, Tesla called back about 30,000 Model X cars because the airbag on the front passenger side may not work properly. This caused Tesla shares to drop almost 3% on Friday, bringing them to their lowest point in almost two years. Before this, it also had to call back about 40,000 Model S and Model X cars because the power steering assist had stopped working.
So far, Tesla has reported 19 recalls for 2022, which affect about 3.7 million cars, according to data from the NHTSA.
