Tesla Recalls China Cars Over Risk of Braking Failure
China’s market regulator has ordered Tesla to recall over 1.1 million cars in the country, citing a reported flaw in the regenerative braking system. The recall covers all Model 3 and Model Y cars made in China between January 2019 and April 2023, as well as some imported Model 3, Model S, and Model X vehicles.
The issue with the regenerative braking system is that it does not allow drivers to set the intensity of the braking or receive alerts when the accelerator pedal is pressed for a long time. This could lead to drivers accidentally misusing the pedals and causing a crash.
