59k Tesla vehicles have software glitch in Germany

The automated emergency call system in Tesla models Y and 3 are being recalled by Germany’s road traffic administration due to a flaw that affects 59,000 vehicles worldwide.

The eCall, which is intended to immediately summon emergency services in the case of a catastrophic accident, is malfunctioning, the KBA watchdog said on its website on June 29.

The recall was initially announced on Saturday by German regional radio Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, which covers the area where Tesla’s German model Y and battery production facility are located close to Berlin.

KBA could not say how many of the 59,129 automobiles impacted worldwide were registered in Germany.

CEO Elon Musk now has to deal with the software issue in addition to the fact that Tesla delivered 17.9% fewer electric vehicles in the second quarter compared to the first quarter due to the disruption of its supply chain and production in China brought on by the COVID 19 shutdown, which was announced on Saturday.

Tesla’s new plants in Texas and Berlin, according to Musk, are “losing billions of dollars” as they try to raise production amid a battery shortage and problems with Chinese ports.

Before it could request a recall, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) had to enhance its investigation into 830,000 Tesla vehicles equipped with the sophisticated driving assistance system Autopilot.
