Software glitch found in 59000 Tesla Vehicles, says German road traffic agency

The software glitch is another headache for the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk after Tesla on Saturday said that it had delivered 17.9 % fewer electric vehicles in the second quarter than the last quarter.

German road traffic agency on Sunday said that 59000 Tesla vehicles globally have a software glitch.

On 29 June, the KBA watchdog on its website said that a software flaw was causing a breakdown of the eCall, which is designed to contact emergency responders automatically in the event of a serious accident.

“German regional broadcaster Rundfunk Berlin-Brandenburg, which serves the region that is home to Tesla’s German model Y and battery production site near Berlin, first reported the recall on Saturday”, a source as per Reuters.

KBA also said that about 59,129 vehicles were affected worldwide, but it clearly hasn’t specified how many of those were registered in Germany.

The glitch is another headache for the CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk after Tesla on Saturday said that it had delivered 17.9 % fewer electric vehicles in the second quarter than the last quarter, as China’s covid shutdowns disrupted its production and supply chain.
