Tesla is set to address an acceleration system issue in nearly all cars it has sold in China, amounting to around 1.1 million electric vehicles produced at its Shanghai plant or imported into the country from January 2019 to April of the current year.
This information comes from a statement by the State Administration for Market Regulation, which has mandated an over-the-air software update to correct the problem.
The issue arises when drivers attempt to decelerate by releasing the accelerator. Normally, the surplus power should be redirected to the battery for charging. However, the flaw causes an unpredictable rate of deceleration, potentially raising the risk of accidents and creating a safety threat, as per the Chinese regulator’s warning.
The defect could cause drivers to inadvertently press the accelerator, confusing it for the brake. To address this, Tesla has been ordered to issue electronic alerts to drivers if the accelerator is pressed for an extended period.
