Tesla Recalls More Than 2 Million Vehicles.

Tesla is facing a significant challenge in the United States, as it has been revealed that the company needs to recall more than two million vehicles to repair a defective system.

This news comes despite Tesla's growing popularity in most of the world, where the demand for their electric vehicles continues to rise.

The recall is primarily due to issues with Tesla's controversial autopilot system, which is designed to ensure driver attention when engaged. This information was reported by the business media outlet Quartz.

The recall decision follows more than two years of investigations by U.S. authorities into several traffic accidents involving Tesla's autopilot system, some of which have been fatal.

According to The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a U.S. government agency under the Department of Transportation, Tesla's methods could lead to "predictable misuse of the system."

The recall reportedly affects nearly all Tesla vehicles sold in the U.S. since the introduction of the autopilot system in 2015. This includes Model S (2012-2023), Model X (2017-2023), Model 3, and Model Y (2020-2023).
