59,000 Tesla vehicles recalled by Germany’s KBA over a software issue

Germany’s road traffic agency has reportedly stated that it is recalling Tesla models 3 and Y due to a glitch discovered in the automatic emergency call system, which is said to have impacted nearly 59,000 vehicles worldwide.

On 28th June, Kraftfahrt-Bundesamt (KBA), an authority within the scope of the Federal Ministry for Digital and Transport in Germany stated on its website that a software defect was leading to a collapse of the eCall, which is intended to invariably notify emergency responders in case of an unforeseen mishap.

Sources claimed that the recall was first disclosed by Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, Germany's regional broadcaster that serves the region that is the base of Tesla's model Y battery manufacturing facility near Berlin. While the exact number of automobiles registered in Germany affected by the incident remains unknown, KBA mentioned that around 59,129 vehicles across the globe were directly impacted.

It is worth noting that the software glitch is creating havoc in the Tesla ecosystem and adding to Elon Musk's headaches after the company recently announced that it supplied 17.9 percent lesser electric vehicles in the second quarter of this year as compared to the previous quarter.

This was primarily due to the resurgence of the coronavirus outbreak in China which led to a temporary shutdown in the country, impeding the supply and production line for the tech giant.

Last month, Musk confirmed that Tesla's latest factories in Texas and Berlin were losing out on money as they found it difficult to ramp up production given the worldwide battery scarcity as well as port challenges faced in China.

In a similar context, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) in the United States updated its investigation into 830,000 Tesla cars equipped with the advanced driver assistance system Autopilot, a crucial step before demanding a call back of the vehicles.
