CNN Business reports:
Over 475,000 Tesla cars have been recalled due to technical defects that may increase the risk of accidents. Two separate recalls are in place, one regarding the rear-view camera in the Tesla Model 3 and the other involves the frunk, or front trunk, latches in the Model S.
The large recall nearly equals Tesla’s total global deliveries last year, as just under 500,000 total cars were delivered in 2020, according to Tesla’s annual report.
Two voluntary recall reports were filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, with Tesla stores and service centers notified last week of the recalls.

Elon Musk just finished selling off nearly 10% of his Tesla stock – a day before the company announced it was recalling more cars than it sold in the US this year due to safety issues. Not suggesting a conspiracy, just noting the timing. https://t.co/Oohc5ZtJ7G
