    The business revealed in a file made public on Saturday that more than 321,000 Tesla vehicles have been recalled in the US due to a problem with the tail lights. Tesla claimed in a filing to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that the 2020–2023 Model Y and 2023 Model 3 vehicles’ tail lights may sometimes fail to illuminate, necessitating the fixes. 

    The maker of electric vehicles (EVs) noted that in order to address the faults causing the light issue, over-the-air software updates will be made available. The problem was discovered by Tesla in October when consumers reported that the malfunctioning tail lights were not working.

    This Is Tesla’s Second Mass Recall 

    A day prior, they announced the recall of over 30,000 Model S and Model X vehicles due to a potential problem that might have led to an improper deployment of the front passenger airbag.

    Tesla’s shares dropped as much as three percent following the recall news, reaching a level that was over two years low. In 19 US recall actions in 2022 alone, the EV firm has recalled more than 3.7 million vehicles, according to NHTSA data.

    The Elon Musk-owned corporation, however, has experienced a wave of recalls that are not just confined to the US. Last Wednesday, an issue with the steering caused over 1,000 Tesla vehicles to be recalled in Australia. The steering defect in Model S and Model X variations produced between 2017 and 2020, according to the Australian Department of Transport, might raise the possibility of an accident “causing injury or death” to the car’s occupants.

    Notably, it was the second time that Australia had issued a large recall for Tesla vehicles. 326 Model 3 automobiles had their seat belts recalled earlier.
