Elon Musk’s electric vehicle startup, Tesla, has recalled hundreds of its brand-new Cyber trucks due to safety issues.

This is due to the fact that their accelerator pedals currently run the risk of becoming caught in the interior trim, which raises the likelihood of collisions.

A business whistleblower who had expressed worries about the safety of the pedals on earlier Tesla cars was recently interviewed by the BBC.

We’ve reached out to Tesla for a response.

3,878 Cyber trucks, which were produced between November 2023 and April 2024 and cost about $61,000 (£48,320), are included in the recall.

In a recall notice, the US Department of Transportation stated, “A trapped accelerator pedal can cause the vehicle to accelerate unintentionally, increasing the risk of a crash.”

The accelerator pad is the source of the issue since it can come loose with force and become lodged in the truck’s interior trim.

According to a document Tesla filed with the US government, the issue will be fixed at no cost to the customer.

Additionally, it states that applying pressure to the brake pedal will override the accelerator and should still stop the truck.

The manufacturer claims that because of an “unapproved change” in the pedal’s manufacturing process, “lubricant” was utilized during assembly, causing the pad to adhere to the pedal improperly.

Drivers complained about the problem to the manufacturer of electric cars twice, on March 31 and March 4.

As of April 15, the business stated in writing that it “is not aware of any collisions, injuries or deaths relating to this condition.”
