American automaker Tesla is recalling about 1.1 million electric vehicles due to a malfunction of the automatic window closing system, writes Reuters, citing a report from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The problem will be fixed through a software update of the car.
The NHTSA said that due to a malfunction in the automatic window closing system, passengers and the driver are at risk of injury. In this regard, the agency pointed out that electric vehicles with this defect do not meet the requirements of the federal motor vehicle safety standard for power windows.
The recall applies to select 2017-2022 Model 3s, 2020-2021 Model Ys, and 2021-2022 Model Ss and Model Xs. The electric vehicle manufacturer has notified the regulator that it will perform an over-the-air software update for the automatic window closing system.
Tesla also noted that it is not aware of any accidents, injuries or deaths related to this defect. The company said that starting September 13, electric vehicles in production and awaiting delivery will receive a software update that adjusts the operation of power windows to comply with federal standard requirements.
