Tesla issues 90,000 cars in massive recall

Car manufacturer Tesla has announced the recall of every Model S executive car that it has sold to date for a fix needed to the front seatbelt.

This is Tesla's biggest ever recall, including all of its Model S executive, a grand total of 90,000 cars to be recalled.

An email from Tesla to its customers stated "[We] 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 Tesla Model S first went on sale in 2012 and has been a success since its debut. The Model S rivalled the likes of BMW 5 Series and Mercedes E-Class. 

A Tesla spokesperson stated: “In early November, a customer sitting in the front passenger seat turned to speak with occupants in the rear and the seat belt became disconnected The seat belt is anchored to the outboard lap pretensioner through two anchor plates that are bolted together. The bolt that was supposed to tie the two anchors together wasn’t properly assembled.”

Initially, 3,000 cars were recalled to be inspected but now Tesla are emailing all customers to recall all Model S executive cars.
