  • Tesla is recalling 11000 SUVs because its seats could fail in a crash

Electric carmaker Tesla Inc is recalling 11,000 Model X sport utility vehicles worldwide due to a faulty locking mechanism in their rear seats that raises the risk of the seats falling forward in a crash.

The issue was originally found during internal testing and Tesla has not received reports of any issues or accidents related to the problem.

The electric auto maker started taking reservations for its mass-market sedan in March 2016, which is priced at $35,000 (29,824 Euros) to start and is key to the company's plans to expand market share. If the cables don't lock properly, the row of seats could move forward in the event of a crash. Tesla says it can correct the issue in about 10 minutes with its mobile service operators.

It is the second time the model has been recalled because of problems with the seats.

Tesla said that the affected models were produced between October 28 last year and August 16 this year.

Tesla has sent letters to its customers who buy a brand vehicle Model X, putting fault that must be corrected.

"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", the Tesla spokesperson said. Although Tesla has not received reports of any issues or accidents relating to this condition, we will be inspecting the affected customers' cars so that we can confirm whether any adjustment is needed.
