Electric vehicle maker Tesla is recalling nearly 285,000 of its Model 3 and Model Y cars that were built in China. The number of vehicles represents most of the vehicles Tesla has delivered China over recent years, according to Wedbush analyst Daniel Ives.
Around 211,000 locally built Model 3 cars and around 36,000 imported ones will be recalled, along with around 38,000 Model Y cars, according to Wedbush.
The recall is made in order to rectify autopilot safety issues that were detected by Chinese regulators. According to the State Administration for Market Regulation in China, the glitch spotted might incorrectly activate the active cruise function in some situations.
