The number of vehicles to be recalled is massive. These are vehicles included in these categories: Model 3 produced from 2017 to 2022, Model Y from 2020 to 2021 and Model S or Model X from 2021 to 2022. in all 1.1 million cars. All customers involved in this operation will come warned with a letter starting November 15th. To fix the windows, however, there will be no need to bring cars to Tesla centers. According to the company, in fact, it is a problem related to the software that manages this technology. To solve it then just throw a update.

Elon Musk intervened directly on the matter, explaining that the update to which the cars will have to undergo is a small operation compared to a real recall: “This is a small software update to be done via the internet. As far as we know, There were no injuries”.
