Tesla is recalling over 1.6 million cars in China due to problems with steering software and door-locking systems, according to the country’s regulator.

The affected models include S, X, 3, and Y, along with 7,538 imported vehicles. The issues will be fixed through remote software updates, avoiding the need to visit dealerships.

This comes shortly after Tesla recalled two million vehicles in the US for autopilot software issues. China’s regulator, the State Administration for Market Regulation (SAMR), considers this a recall despite the remote fix.

Tesla’s challenges in China include losing the global electric car sales lead to BYD in the last quarter of 2023 and a previous recall in 2022.

Tesla, with a significant market in China, aims to address safety concerns as the country encourages clean energy vehicles.
