Although safety is one of the most important issues in Tesla vehicles, vehicles still face some problems. In this context, a new report has now revealed more frightening details. According to the most recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report, there is an accident risk for over 300,000 Tesla electric vehicles (NHTSA). The Full Self-driving (FSD) beta software that has been released in the Model S, Model X, Model 3, and Model Y has an issue, claims the report.
A report claims that over 300,000 Tesla EVs pose a crash risk
As of right now, 362758 Tesla EVs are being recalled by US authorities. However, the business will release a software update to correct the issue rather than actually recalling the vehicles to a repair center. The over-the-air (OTA) upgrade will take place by April 15, according to the authorities. Tesla claimed that the OTA updates will assist to fix the problem and improve how FSD Beta handles specific driving maneuvers.
In August 2021, the NHTSA began a thorough investigation into Tesla's Autopilot system. According to the regulatory body, the probe involved more than 830000 automobiles and needed a lot of resources, technical know-how, and legal know-how. The governing body also expressed its concern over a Tweet from CEO Elon Musk from December, in which he agreed to remove the "steering wheel nag," a warning that asks drivers to hold the wheel to demonstrate they are paying attention.
