Tesla Recalls 1.6 Million Vehicles in China for Steering and Door Latch Issues

Tesla is recalling over 1.6 million Model S, X, 3, and Y electric vehicles imported to China, citing issues with their automatic assisted steering functions and door latch controls. The recall was announced by China's State Administration for Market Regulation, specifying that Tesla Motors in Beijing and Shanghai would use remote upgrade technology to address the problems. In most cases, car owners would not need to physically visit Tesla service centers for the upgrades.

The recall related to problems with the automatic steering assist function applies to 1.6 million imported Tesla Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y vehicles. The notice emphasized that drivers might misuse the combined driving function when the automatic steering function is engaged, increasing the risk of accidents.

Another recall is targeted at fixing the door unlock logic control for imported Model S and Model X electric vehicles, covering 7,538 vehicles produced between October 26, 2022, and November 16, 2023. This recall aims to prevent door latches from coming open during a collision.


These recalls come on the heels of a similar recall in the United States last month, affecting over 2 million Tesla EVs. The recall in the US aimed to enhance the system for monitoring drivers, following a two-year investigation by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that found the system to be defective. The upgrades are designed to prompt drivers using Tesla's Autopilot system to pay closer attention to the road, with online software changes increasing warnings and alerts about keeping hands on the steering wheel.
