WASHINGTON -- Tesla Inc. is recalling about 48,000 Model 3 Performance vehicles in the U.S. because they may not display the speedometer while in "Track Mode," documents released Friday show.
The recall covers vehicles from the 2018 through 2022 model years. Tesla will perform an over-the-air software update to address the issue. Tesla said a firmware update released in December unintentionally removed the speed unit from the user interface.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the vehicles do not comply with a federal motor vehicle safety standard and if drivers do not know how fast they are traveling it could increase the risk of a crash.
