Tesla is now calling back around 200,000 vehicles in China


The US electric car maker Tesla is recalling around 200,000 vehicles in China due to possible safety-endangering defects.

As can be seen from an online statement by the Chinese market surveillance authority, almost 20,000 imported “Model S” cars and over 35,000 imported “Model 3” cars are affected. In addition, there are around 144,000 “Model 3” produced in China, which are also affected by the recall.

According to reports, there are two different security risks: In «Model 3», defects were found around the reversing camera. This could be damaged by opening and closing the trunk lid and ultimately fail. With the “Model S” there is a risk of the bonnet opening unexpectedly if a locking mechanism were released. This could obstruct the driver’s view.

Tesla had previously recalled almost half a million vehicles in the United States for the same reasons. It has not yet been possible to clarify whether the defects and a possible recall will also affect vehicles in Germany. The responsible Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA) in Flensburg could not initially be reached for a comment.

Tesla generates around a fifth of its sales in China, the world’s largest market for electric cars. The group founded by Elon Musk has been operating a factory in Shanghai with several thousand employees since 2019.
