Tesla vehicles have been repeatedly accused of malfunctioning operations in mainland China, including the accidental triggering of the active cruise system, which caused the driver to fail to operate the vehicle normally, causing many accidents, and even causing victims to defend their rights. Finally, Tesla today announced a recall plan to recycle Model 3 and Model Y in China, involving more than 300,000 vehicles.

Specifically, Tesla, through its Beijing and Shanghai branches, respectively recalled some imported Model 3 electric vehicles produced between January 12, 2019 and November 27, 2019, a total of 35,665 vehicles; December 19, 2019 to 2021 A total of 211,256 domestically produced Model 3 electric vehicles were produced on June 7, and a total of 38,599 domestically produced Model Y electric vehicles were produced between January 1, 2021 and June 7, 2021.

According to Tesla, they will use OTA to upgrade the active cruise control software for vehicles within the recall range free of charge, and the owner will be able to complete the process without going to the store. As for vehicles that cannot be upgraded via OTA, the owner will be contacted through the service center to upgrade.
