Following a $600,000 USD Super Bowl ad spot ordered by major tech CEO Dan O’Dowd, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has ordered the recall of 363,000 Tesla vehicles due to its Full Self-Driving Beta software.

In a recent announcement from Tesla itself, the report indicated that the recall will affect 362,758 of its electric vehicles including, “certain 2016-2023 Model S, Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3, and 2020-2023 Model Y vehicles equipped with Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD Beta) software or pending installation.” The EV giant has admitted that the FSD Beta could be the source of crashes reported.

Since Tesla announced the FSD Beta program, the NHSTA has formally launched an investigation back in August 2021 for fatal highway accidents that have been documented on social media. The investigation also looks into the software’s self-destructive and rogue behavior. Back in January, NHTSA’s acting head Ann Carlson said, “We’re investing a lot of resources. The resources require a lot of technical expertise, actually some legal novelty and so we’re moving as quickly as we can, but we also want to be careful and make sure we have all the information we need.”

In regards to the most recent recall, Reuters has reported that the EV company will release free OTA update to its customers to fix the issue.

In case you missed it, Tesla is planning on opening 7,500 of its charging stations to all EVs.
