Tesla has discovered a bug in their Track Mode software for the Model 3 Performance in which the speedometer may not display when the feature is active.
According to the recall notice posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the bug was introduced in the 2021.44.25 software update last December.
The issue was only discovered on March 18 when a member of the Tesla test team identified the removal of the speed display.
Despite a “recall” being issued, the fix will be a simple over-the-air (OTA) software update, which will be sent to 48,184 2018-2022 Model 3 vehicles in the US.
For vehicles made on or about April 18, 2022, the fix has already been implemented.
Transport Canada has not yet issued a similar recall at the time of publication.
The issue has also been reported by China’s State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), which issued a similar recall this morning covering 14,684 Model 3 Performance cars produced between January 12, 2019 and March 25, 2022 at Giga Shanghai.
