Tesla to recall more than 2 million of its cars

2 February , 2024  

American Tesla recalls up to 2.2 million electric cars, including the Cybertruck pickup trucks released this year, due to incorrect font size of warning messages on the dashboard, according to a report on the website of the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The font of the messages is too small, which can make it difficult to read critical information and thus increase the likelihood of an accident, the document said.

The recall is being conducted through a free remote software update and affects some of the 2012-2023 Model S, Model X (2016-2024), Model 3 (2017-2023), Model Y (2019-2024) and Cybertruck (2024) vehicles.

Tesla delivered 1.8 million electric vehicles worldwide in 2023.

Shares of the automaker are down 0.8% in pre-market trading on Friday.
