Identifying features

VIN (Vehicle identification number)

What are the defects?

Due to a software issue the vehicle, when operated in Track Mode, does not display the Unit of speed (kph or mph) correctly. As a result the driver may not adequately be able to determine the speed of the vehicle.

What are the hazards?

If the driver is unable to correctly determine the speed of the vehicle, it may increase the risk of an accident, causing injury or death to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Tesla owners will receive a notification on their cars that an Over-The-Air update which will provide a measurement of speed whilst in Track mode can be downloaded and installed.
