MW Tesla to recall about 80,000 cars in China, regulator says

By Yifan Wang

Tesla Inc. is recalling about 80,000 cars in China due to software and seat-belt issues, days after U.S. regulators asked the company to recall hundreds of thousands of vehicles.

The electric-car maker $(TSLA)$, the second largest in China by sales, has filed its recall plan to the State Administration for Market Regulation, the Chinese regulator said Friday.

The recall involves 67,698 imported Model S and Model X cars, which have "software problems" that may lead to battery malfunction. Tesla is also recalling 2,736 imported Model 3 cars and 10,127 of such vehicles made in China. The company cited seat-belt issues for these vehicles, according to China's top market watchdog.

Tesla's recall in China came after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in the U.S. last week recalled more than 300,000 Tesla vehicles due to potential taillight failures.
