A closing window could pinch someone thanks to problems with the reversal action.

tesla issues recall for 1.1 million evs due to power window problem

/ Tesla has had to issue its largest-ever recall.Tesla

On Thursday, Tesla issued a recall for almost 1.1 million vehicles due to a problem with their windows. The problem is related to the windows’ automatic reversal function, the safety feature that lowers the glass if it’s being raised and encounters part of a human being.

Unfortunately for the affected Teslas, during conformity production testing, “Tesla technicians identified window automatic reversal system performance that had greater than expected variations in response to pinch detection.”

The problem affects Model 3s built between 2017 and 2022, Model Ys built between 2020 and 2021, and Models S and X built between 2021 and 2022. Tesla first identified the problem in late August, and by September 12, after analyzing and validating its test results, the company made the decision to issue the recall.

The good news is that Tesla is able to remedy this problem with an over-the-air software update that brings the cars back into conformity with the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards. Tesla says it will notify owners on November 15, and says that it has been applying the new software to cars in production since September 13.
