The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) received a letter from Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) on September 21 that informed them that the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer would perform an over-the-air update for one of their system.
The recall for a faulty window reversal system that did not react accordingly when detecting an obstruction seems to be the reason for a 1.1 million vehicle recall. The recall will cover some 2017-2022 Model 3, 2020-2021 Model Y, and 2021-2022 Model S and Model X vehicles, according to a Reuters report published on September 22.
Furthermore, Tesla claimed that it was unaware of any warranty claims, crashes, or injuries due to this faulty system.
