Over the weekend, Tesla initiated a recall of over 285,000 cars in China over concerns with the Model 3 and Model Y vehicles cruise-control operation. . China’s State Administration for Market Regulation said that in certain models, the cruise control could be mistakenly switched on when drivers attempt to change gears or if they brush the gear selector by accident, which has the potential of causing the vehicle to accelerate unexpectedly.
Tesla apologized for the recall on Saturday in a statement posted on its official Weibo account, one of China’s most popular social media sites. “We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to our car owners. In the meantime, Tesla will strictly follow national regulations and keep improving our safety protection, adamantly providing an excellent and safe driving experience to our customers,” the automaker said.
