Shocking news from the world’s most famous electric car company: Tesla is recalling all 90,000+ Model S cars that have been sold since 2012 after a seat belt problem was discovered in Europe, according to various media outlets such as Bloomberg.
“Tesla recently found a Model S in Europe with a front seat belt that was not properly connected to the outboard lap pretensioner. This vehicle was not involved in a crash and there were no injuries. However, in the event of a crash, a seat belt in this condition would not provide full protection,” the company said in an e-mail to customers Friday.
While just a single occurrence has been reported to date, Tesla voluntarily chose to conduct a pre-emptive recall. Some 3,000 vehicles have already been inspected, and no other issues have been found.
