Investigations are underway on two incidents involving Model Y cars.
U.S. regulators are looking into Tesla Inc. after allegations that certain newer Model Y vehicles’ steering wheels can come off while they’re being driven.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, two incidents of the steering wheel coming off while operating a 2023 Model Y SUV have been reported.
The preliminary estimate covers 120,089 vehicles, according to NHTSA.
The NHTSA inquiry is the most recent in a line of inquiries into Tesla, its products, and its leader, Elon Musk.
After a warning from the NHTSA that Tesla’s automatic driving technology could raise the danger of a collision, the firm recalled 362,758 electric vehicles last month.
The Model Y, a crucial item for the business, was the best-selling electric car globally in 2017.
Tesla’s two newest facilities, one outside of Berlin and the other in Austin, have just started producing automobiles.
