Tesla is facing significant recalls affecting its Cybertruck model, totaling over 11,000 vehicles due to various safety concerns, as reported by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

One of the recalls involves 11,688 Cybertrucks where a malfunctioning windshield wiper system poses a safety risk by potentially reducing visibility, thus increasing the likelihood of accidents. According to the NHTSA, excessive electrical current may cause the front windshield wiper motor controller to fail, necessitating a replacement of the wiper motor and application of adhesion promoter and pressure-sensitive tape to rectify the issue.

Additionally, Tesla is recalling another 11,383 units of the Cybertruck due to concerns that trim in the trunk bed was improperly attached. This defect could result in the trim becoming loose while driving, posing a hazard to other motorists on the road.

These recalls come shortly after Tesla’s earlier recall of nearly 4,000 Cybertrucks in April. That recall addressed an issue with the accelerator pedal pad, which had the potential to detach and become lodged in the interior trim, posing yet another safety risk.

These setbacks are particularly challenging for Tesla’s Cybertruck, which has faced delays in mass production scheduled to commence next year. Despite beginning deliveries of the Blade Runner-inspired truck in November 2023, Tesla has encountered difficulties with production ramp-up, described by CEO Elon Musk as navigating significant challenges.

While Tesla has not disclosed the exact number of Cybertrucks delivered in recent quarterly reports, these recalls underscore ongoing challenges in ensuring product quality and safety. The company typically resolves many issues through over-the-air software updates, although the current mechanical and assembly concerns require physical inspection and correction by Tesla’s service teams.

In a broader context, Tesla has been proactive in addressing safety issues, with recalls not uncommon across the automotive industry. The recent recalls highlight Tesla’s commitment to maintaining high safety standards amidst the complexities of electric vehicle production and innovation.
