The Federal Motor Transport Authority in Germany is calling on Tesla to recall Model Y and Model 3 vehicles due to a fault in the car emergency system.
According to the auto regulators site, the recall could affect more than 59,000 Tesla’s worldwide.
Reporting by Bloomberg notes that the issue revolves around a glitch in the emergency system. The system should automatically call a country’s emergency line after a severe accident, but it does not appear to work every time.
The recall only affects vehicles built in 2022 and does include Model Y vehicles built at Giga Berlin.
The fix is a simple software update as per the bulletin.
The German auto regulator suggests that affected owners contact Tesla or drive to an authorized repair shop for a software update.
The Federal Motor Transport Authority published the notice on June 29.
However, this morning, the public broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg broke the news.
Tesla did not provide a recall notice yet.
As well, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the United States did not issue a notice either.
However, it looks like a simple fix and potentially could even be done via an over-the-air update.
We will continue to update this story as North American regulators and Tesla provide updates.
