Tesla named the culprit in the largest recall of electric carsMay 7, 2018
The company Tesla believes that the originator of the largest recall of the Model S sedans is the supplier of Bosch parts. According to the American manufacturer of electric cars, they should bear the costs associated with the behavior of the service action. This is reported by the edition of Handelsblatt with reference to an unnamed source. There is no official confirmation of this information yet.
The company Tesla decided to recall 123,000 of its electric cars in late March this year. This is the largest service of the American automaker. The recall campaign affected the Model S sedans, which were released before April 2016.
The reason for the service action is the bolts in the power steering, which are prone to excessive corrosion. This is especially true for countries with a cold climate. According to engineers Tesla, the impact on the bolts have anti-ice reagents. In the service centers, the replaced Tesla Model S will replace these parts. All works will be absolutely free for owners of electric cars.
Tesla, a company focused on the production of electric vehicles, was founded in 2003. Since 2008, he sells the Tesla Roadster. In 2012, the company introduced the Model S sedan. The manufacturer’s headquarters are in Palo Alto, California. The company employs more than two thousand people.
In February of this year, Tesla Motors decided to change its name to Tesla Inc. At this step, the American company went to remind of its plans to go beyond selling only electric cars and create a real “energy empire.”
