Tesla to recall 2,700 Model X SUVs over seat issue
It said the recall affects all Model X SUVs built before March 26, 2016. It is the first recall for the Model X since Tesla began deliveries of the luxury electric SUV in September.
Tesla Motors said it was recalling the Model Xs after the seats failed a strength test in the European Union. Tesla had previously performed 15 tests in the United States in which the seats passed. The EU test was different and more stringent, the company said.
Tesla said it was issuing the recall in an abundance of caution in the United States even though it was not mandated to do so. The Model X has not yet been delivered to European customers. ■
