According to Germany’s motor transport authority (KBA), US electric car manufacturer Tesla will have to recall around 12,300 Model X cars worldwide. The reason is the problem with car body mouldings that could fall off the vehicle, Reuters report. KBA said that all the cars built in 2015 and 2016 must be recalled. In February 2020, Tesla had to recall approximately 15,000 Model X SUVs sold in the US and Canada due to a potential issue that could limit the functioning of power steering assist. Back in November 2020, the automaker recalled more than 10,000 of its Model X and Model Y electric vehicles over the roof trim adhesive concerns and the possibility of a faulty steering wheel. A similar situation happened in January 2021. The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) asked Tesla to recall around 158,000 Model X and Model S cars to fix a glitch in the touchscreen, the Wall Street Journal notes. Notably, the main functions in Tesla’s vehicles are controlled through a big central screen. According to NHTSA, a 17-inch touchscreen in the Model S and Model X cars can shut off unexpectedly. This poses a threat to road safety. Therefore, Tesla must take precautions in order to avoid potential risks, the agency stresses. Amid this news, Tesla’s shares dropped in the New York session. Between February 10 and February 17, the stocks of the electric vehicle maker went down by 2.16%.
