Tesla Australia has issued a recall for 2799 Tesla Model 3 Performance sedans due to a potential speedometer issue.
According to the Department of Infrastructure's recall notice, the vehicle does not display the Unit of Speed appropriately when in Track Mode due to a software issue. As a result, the driver may not be able to accurately calculate the vehicle's speed.
If the driver is unable to accurately calculate the vehicle's speed, the chance of an accident increases, potentially resulting in harm or death to the vehicle's occupants and other road users.
Model Years 2018-2022 are included in the recall.
While Tesla has not previously broken down its sales by model, the sheer number of cars impacted in the recall suggests it covers all Performance models sold after 2018.
Drive attempted to contact a spokeswoman of Tesla in Australia for more information but received no response.
A notification will be sent to affected owners, requiring an over-the-air update to fix the problem.
