Tesla Recalls 578,607 EVs To Solve Pedestrian Sound Warning Issue in US


On Thursday, 10th February 2022, US regulator said, the EV producer ‘Tesla Inc.’ has been recalling 578,607 electric vehicles in the United States because the pedestrians might not be able to hear a warning sound of an arriving or approaching car because of the loud music and several other sounds that are played by the company’s ‘Boombox’ feature in the cars.

The company ‘Tesla’ has issued around 10 recalls in the United States over the past four months, which is also including four recalls in the past two weeks, and the company has also come under the increasing scrutiny from the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) of the United States.

Tesla said that, the company was not aware of any of the crashes, along with the fatalities or injuries that are related to the issue of vehicle alert, and the company is going to be recalling several 2020 to 2022 models including Model S, Model Y and Model X along with the 2017 to 2022 Model 3 vehicles because of the Boombox function that is going to be allowing the sounds for being played through an external speaker when the vehicle will be in the motion and this might obscure the required sound of the Pedestrian Warning System.
