A statement from the State Administration for Market Control of China indicates that problems with the rear electric power semiconductor converter may be identified in the relevant batches.
Tesla is recalling 127,785 Model 3 electric vehicles in China due to problems with an electric power semiconductor converter whose operation does not meet established standards. This is stated in a message published on Thursday on the website of the State Administration for Market Control.
34,207 Model 3 electric vehicles imported into the country, as well as 93,578 produced in the country from January 11, 2019 to January 25, 2022, are subject to recall from April 7. The ministry’s statement indicates that problems with the rear electric power semiconductor converter may be identified in the relevant batches, which is due to its factory defect.
Because of this, during operation, there is a possibility that the device will not be able to stably control the flow of current. If this problem occurs in motion, the car may lose traction, and if the vehicle is stopped, then there is a possibility of failure when starting the engine.
Before that, Tesla electric cars produced at different times, in particular the Model S and Model X have already been recalled from the Chinese market several times due to a number of technical problems.
