Tesla calls 30 thousand imported cars to China

Tesla is recalling Model S and Model X vehicles built between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018.

Tesla is calling about 30,000 Model S and Model X cars imported to China due to the suspension of the American company. According to a statement by the State Administration for Market Regulation, released today, the company is recalling vehicles produced between September 17, 2013 and January 15, 2018.

The authorities have identified two suspension defects. However, what problems are being discussed is not reported. At the same time, a Tesla representative in China declined to comment. The recall applies to most of the imported vehicles sold by the company in China in recent years.

Recall that Tesla began production in Shanghai around the beginning of 2020, and after that, sales of imported models were usually only a few hundred vehicles per month. The Shanghai plant helped Tesla expand in China, and the company said it has the capacity to produce 200,000 vehicles a year at the site.

Quality problems, such as fires due to battery defects, can affect consumer perception of electric vehicles. A number of automakers, from Hyundai to Ford and BMW, have lost their reputation in recent weeks over reports of an electric car fire.
