Tesla recalls nearly half a million cars due to technical issues...

US electric car maker Tesla is recalling more than 475,000 cars in the US, equivalent to its total worldwide sales last year as a whole, due to technical issues that increase the risk of accidents.

And Bloomberg News Agency indicated today, Thursday (December 30, 2021), that Tesla intends to recall all “Model 3” cars that were manufactured during the period from 2017 to 2020, which amounts to 356,309 cars.

The US National Traffic Safety Administration stated that the camera cable may be damaged as a result of opening and closing the tailgate, which prevents the image from appearing on the driver’s display screen.

Tesla has also decided to recall as many as 119,000 Model S cars assembled as of 2014 due to a faulty front hood lock, which could cause it to open unexpectedly. Tesla said it would fix both bugs for free.

Earlier this year, Tesla fixed the computer application in more than 285,000 cars in China. Most of these cars were delivered in recent years to treat problems related to car security, according to the Chinese regulatory authorities.

    Assembly lines and mass production

    Like any other industry, the auto industry is affected by the mechanization process. With the invention of the production line by the American company “Ransom to Olds” at the beginning of the twentieth century, the era of mass production in the automobile industry began. In 1978, it was Daimler, the German company, who ushered in the era of robotics in the automobile industry. This has greatly reduced the work that the worker gets dirty, such as painting.
