The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently called for Tesla to announce a revocable campaign.

As informs Reuters, the department requires the recall of 158,000 electric cars in the United States due to the fact that they have defects that can threaten the safety of not only passengers and the driver, but also other road users.

It is noted that we are talking about such electric cars as Model S and Model X. Problems are associated with the main control unit MCU, including its screen. According to a foreign publication, the department does not often resort to such a step.

Recall that Tesla is an American company that produces electric cars. This corporation was founded in 2003. It is named after the famous electrical engineer and physicist Nikola Tesla. Tesla produces its own models at factories in Fremont, the United States, and China. The first model unveiled by the American automaker is the Roadster, an electric sports car. This electric car was introduced in July 2006 in California.

In addition, some time ago it was noted that the design center of the American corporation Tesla in China will help local consumers like electric cars. It should be emphasized that the first project of the new studio may be a compact electric car, costing from $ 25,000.
