Tesla, a leading manufacturer of electric cars in the world, is once again facing difficulties. In the Wall Street Journal, it is reported that a total of 80,561 electric vehicles have been recalled on account of software and seat belt problems in China, according to the Wall Street Journal. A record was broken by the company with its fourth recall in a week, an unusually high number for a company that has experienced many problems in recent years.
There have been more than 80,000 Tesla cars recalled in China because of problems with the software and seat belts. In accordance with the State Administration for Market Regulation of the country, 67,698 Model S and Model X vehicles are affected by battery management issues that may be causing them to spontaneously stop, while 12,863 Model 3 sedans are affected by seat belt issues.
In most cases, it is quite easy to find a solution to the problems that arise in vehicles. As a result of software updates, Tesla is able to fix models that have battery issues. On the other hand, a small number of Model 3s (12,863) require manual repairs. The cause of the defects is not known, nor is it known whether they were a result of accidents or injuries, or whether they were directly related to previous manufacturing faults. There is one thing users complain about a lot and that is the frequency with which recalls take place.
A total of three recalls have been issued by the company in the last week. In the last few days, Tesla has recalled almost 30,000 Model X SUVs for faulty airbags, and 321,000 Model 3 and Model Y EVs because of software-related rear light anomalies. Unfortunately, this does not include the recalls required to fix bugs in the car that caused its windows to jam and caused some issues with its autopilot.
Every time Tesla encounters one of these issues, it is able to resolve it in a timely and systematic manner. The problem with this software is that it sometimes removes some problems without users being aware of it, with updates that it releases remotely. Although there is a tendency to recall products frequently, the company’s reputation has been negatively affected by this. With electric vehicles becoming more and more competitive, Tesla will undoubtedly lose customers to its competitors if it continues to suffer from the problems it is experiencing, and the market for electric vehicles is expected to become far more crowded in the future.
