All defects will be removed by the company free of charge.
Manufacturer of electric cars Tesla will call off more than 10 thousand cars Model X and Model Y because of identified defects in the fixing of fragments of the roof and the threat of steering failure.
According to the State Administration of Market Regulation (SAMR) of China, the company recalled in China 870 Model X cars produced between March 16 and July 31, 2016. In the cars found a threat of tearing off the outer roof section, located between the lifting rear doors.
Flying pieces of the roof while moving may be a danger to other road users, especially motorcyclists.
In addition, due to a similar problem, Tesla this week announced the recall of 9,136 Model X machines produced between September 2015 and July 2016.
The carmaker also said it will recall the 401 Model Y produced in 2020 due to the fact that the bolts in the steering mechanism may not have been tightened enough during assembly. This could lead to a steering failure and therefore to an accident.
Recall that last year, the demand for crossovers and SUVs broke all records. However, among the premium SUVs, no one has ever been competitive with the campaign Mercedes-Maybach GLS.+.
