New Delhi, April 20: Tesla, the electric vehicle (EV) manufacturer, has recently announced the recall of its Cybertrucks due to an issue with the accelerator pedal. There is a problem with excessive lubricant on the pedal covers, which can lead to unintended acceleration of the vehicle. The recall might affect nearly 4,000 Tesla Cybertrucks and the company will likely replace or repair the faulty pedals at no extra cost to owners. 

Tesla has issued a recall for its Cybertrucks over accelerator pedal defects, as per a report of Business Today. In fact, the recall will involve about 3,878 Cybertrucks produced from November 2023 to April 2024. Basically, it is a safety measure aimed at protecting against any fatal incidents of many customers who own a Cybertruck. Moreover, this is happening when Elon Musk’s EV firm has recently laid off its employees and facing other challenges, such as a decrease in the number of vehicles delivered to customers. There have been no accidents, injuries or fatalities associated with this issue as of April 15. Tesla Deal With Tata: Elon Musk’s EV Company Signs Deal With Tata Electronics To Procure Semiconductors for Its Global Operations, Say Reports.

Similarly, in January, more than 1.6 million cars were recalled in China due to issues with steering software and door-locking systems.
