Almost every Tesla in China 'recalled' with alleged safety fault

Tesla has recalled 285,520 vehicles in China, citing a software fault allegedly affecting locally-built and imported examples of the Model 3 sedan and Model Y SUV. According to state-owned media, the electric cars' cruise control functions could be inadvertently engaged when the driver attempts to select a gear (forward or reverse). In extreme cases, this could lead to an accident and occupant injury.

The move to allow vehicles with autonomous driving capabilities to drive legally on British roads was confirmed by the UK’s Transport Minister, Rachel Maclean MP.
