Leading electric vehicle maker Tesla Inc. (TSLA) has recalled 947 vehicles in the United States citing that the rearview image may fail to immediately display when they vehicle starts to reverse. This development was announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
According to the information given to the NHTSA by Tesla, the recall includes some 2018-2019 Model S, Model X, and 2017-2020 Model 3 vehicles equipped with Autopilot Computer 2.5 and operating certain firmware releases.
The affected vehicles do not comply with a federal safety standard on rear visibility, the company will be performing an over the air software update to address the concern.
“Despite not finding a noncompliance in the tests that Tesla conducted, a recall determination was made out of an abundance of caution to recognize the potential presence of a noncompliance in affected vehicles,” said Tesla.
NHTSA says a delayed rearview image display reduces the ability of the driver’s rear view hence increasing the risk of a crash.
