According to reports, Tesla has been ordered to recall about 1.1 million vehicles in the US due to a safety issue with electric windows.
The problem relates to window blockage detection, which is responsible for detecting objects that may be caught, such as a child’s fingers.
The recall pertains to Model 3 cars from 2017/22, Model Y cars from 2020/21, as well as Model S and Model X vehicles from 2021/22.
Tesla reportedly told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that it would attempt to fix the issue via an over-the-air software update, according to Reuters.
Tesla said in documents posted Thursday by US safety regulators that the automatic window reversal system may not respond correctly after detecting an obstacle.
NHTSA said this is a violation of federal safety standards for power windows.
Tesla discovered the problem in August during production testing. Owners will be notified by letter starting November 15.
The company also said in the documents that vehicles in production have received the update from September 13.
According to the documents, Tesla was not aware of any warranty claims or injuries caused by the problem until September 16.
