According to Green Car Reports quoting Power Information Network data, electric vehicles represented 1.6 per cent of new car sales in the USA during 2019, compared to a 1.1 per cent share for three-pedal cars.

Tesla recalls Model X for power steering failure, Australia not included

Tesla has announced it will voluntarily recall 15,000 Model X SUVs over the risk its power steering components will fail. UPDATE (18/02/20): The recall has expanded to include 3183 Model Xs in China, as reported by Reuters. CarAdvice understands no Australian vehicles are included in the recall. The campaign includes vehicles built before mid-October 2016 and is not attributable to Australian models, as local Model X deliveries only began later in 2016.
