Tesla to recall 30,000 cars from China

24 Oct 2020


BEIJING: US electric car manufacturer Tesla will recall almost 30,000 vehicles imported into China due to suspension defects, China’s market regulator said on Friday.

The recall applies to all Model S and Model X cars imported into China from September 2013 to January 2018. Defects in the suspension found in both models could “increase the risk of accidents,” the State Admi­ni­stration for Market Regul­ation said in a statement.

In New York, shares in the fast-growing electric carmaker fell sharply on the Nasdaq following the announcement.
