OREANDA-NEWSThe American company Tesla, entrepreneur Ilona Mask recalls 15 thousand electric vehicles Model X. This was reported on Wednesday by The New York Times, citing American and Canadian authorities.

According to her, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Department of Transportation of Canada believe that a malfunction could have occurred during the production of the car steering system, which could lead to difficulties in driving and, as a result, increase the likelihood of an accident. According to the newspaper, we are talking about cars of the 2016 model year, produced no later than mid-October. The New York Times notes that in 2018, for a similar reason, the company recalled 123 thousand Model S electric cars of the same year of manufacture, on which some parts were eventually replaced.

Tesla was founded by Musk in 2003. It was originally called Tesla Motors, but was later renamed Tesla. Its headquarters is located in the American Palo Alto (California). At first, the company specialized in the production of electric vehicles, but later began to develop solar panels and other energy storage systems.
