Tesla Recalls 2 Million Vehicles over Flaws in Autopilot Software

HeadlineDec 14, 2023

Tesla has recalled software from nearly all of its 2 million vehicles on U.S. roads after regulators found the electric car manufacturer failed to ensure that drivers remain attentive while using Autopilot, a system that can drive autonomously. This follows a series of accidents involving self-driving Teslas — some of them fatal. Meanwhile, in Sweden, garbage has begun piling up at Tesla’s workshops after a major Transport Workers’ Union said it would stop collecting waste in support of Swedish mechanics who’ve been on strike since October to protest the anti-union policies of Tesla and its billionaire CEO, Elon Musk.
