Tesla Addresses Software and Door Latch Issues in China’s Vehicles with Remote Updates


  • Tesla launches OTA updates for 1.6 million Chinese cars.

  • Updates target Autopilot and door latch safety issues.

  • No physical service required for "recall" fixes.

In China, Tesla embarks on a large-scale software update to improve the Autopilot functionality and door latch safety for 1.6 million vehicles. This correction involves an Over-the-Air (OTA) deployment targeted at a swath of Tesla models, which encompasses the imported Model S, Model X, and Model 3, as well as the domestically produced Model 3 and Model Y vehicles.

Software Update for Enhanced Driver Monitoring

This initiative follows the Chinese State Administration for Market Regulation’s directive, which mandates a software revision intended to bolster monitoring systems when Autopilot is active. The move reflects similar updates that were issued to approximately 2 million vehicles in the United States to address safety concerns.

Door Latch Rectification Without Physical Service

Distinguished as a “recall” in regulatory terms, the process diverges from conventional recalls as it does not necessitate physical intervention at Service Centers. The OTA update resolves the software issues, while a separate OTA update is designated for Model S and Model X vehicles to repair door latches that may release during collisions, counter to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards.

This OTA door latch solution was previously applied to 120,000 U.S. vehicles and is now extended to Model S and Model X vehicles produced in China between October 26, 2022, and November 16, 2023. The term “recall” has sparked debate due to the non-intrusive nature of the OTA fix, prompting Tesla CEO Elon Musk to advocate for updated terminology that better reflects the modern repair methods.
