US Regulators Ask Tesla to Recall 158,000 Cars

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked Tesla to recall over 150,000 Model-S and Model-X vehicles over concerns about the cars’ touch screens. U.S. regulators demanded Tesla recall 158,000 of its electric cars over safety concerns on Wednesday.

Regulators found that the cars’ media control units could fail after years of use, leading to touch screens not working. This would affect safety functions such as defogging, back-up cameras, and the driver assistance system.

Last week, CEO Elon Musk surpassed Amazon’s top boss Jeff Bezos to become the world’s richest person.
