(IANS) Electric car maker Tesla has launched a recall of 870 vehicles in China, citing defective parts that could increase the risk of accidents, China’s top quality watchdog said on Friday.
The recall involves some imported Model X vehicles manufactured between March 16, 2016, and July 31, 2016, according to a statement from the State Administration for Market Regulation.
The automaker promised to conduct tests on the recalled vehicles and replace defective parts free of charge, while advising users to drive carefully before their cars are fixed, reports Xinhua news agency.
Overall, Tesla has recalled over 9,500 Model X and Y SUVs built in 2015 and 2016 and that company has filed the recall with the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Tesla issued a new recall with NHTSA for 9,136 Model X SUVs built in 2015 and 2016 over pieces of the body that can detach while driving due to a lack of primer.
Tesla also issued a recall for 437 Model Y SUVs over a potentially loose bolt that could result in the upper control arm separating from the steering knuckle, reports Electrek.
The company said it was not aware of any accidents caused by the defect.
Tesla previously recalled 123,000 cars from its Model S line over a power steering problem.
