Tesla Recalls 1 Million Vehicles for Finger-Pinching Window Issue


Tesla is recalling nearly 1.1 million cars in the US because the windows might close too fast and pinch people's fingers, including all four of its models.


Documents produced by American regulators show the windows may not react correctly after detecting an obstruction.


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says it is a safety-standards violation.

The recall covers certain 2017 to 2022 Model 3 sedans and some 2020 and 2021 Model Y SUVs. Also included are some Model S sedans and Model X SUVs from 2021 and 2022.


Tesla discovered the problem during production testing in August. Owners will be notified by letter starting 15 November. The company says in documents that vehicles in production got the update starting 13 September.


Tesla was not aware of any warranty claims or injuries due to the problem as of 16 September, according to the documents.
