Tesla calls 11 thousand vehicles back

Tesla Inc is recalling 11,000 Model X SUVs globally over an issue with rear seats. In April 2016, around 2,700 vehicles were recalled because the carmaker said testing had revealed that the third row could slide forward during a crash.

Tesla said it noticed the issue during recent internal testing.

Owners of impacted units will be notified by Tesla.

Tesla has started to inform Model X owners about the recall, and they can contact Tesla's mobile fix units or visit a dealer to get the issue fixed. Tesla added that only 3 percent of vehicles he would recall had such a problem.

The Palo Alto, Calif. -based company started informing customers via email about the recall which covers Model X SUVs that have a fold flat down row of back seats and were produced from October 28, 2016, to August 16 of 2017. Owners can stake their cars to a Tesla Service Center if they prefer.

"We will be conducting a voluntary recall to inspect the affected vehicles and confirm whether any adjustment is needed", the company said in an emailed statement. Any of Tesla's SUVs with single-post seats aren't affected.

According to Tesla, that recall was initiated after the seats failed a strength test in the European Union.

"Until then, there is no issue with continuing to drive your Model X", Tesla wrote in the email. We are doing this out of an abundance of caution, because even though we have never seen it happen, if the cable is not properly adjusted, the seat back on the left side of the second row seats could move forward during a crash.

The voluntary recall comes at a time when investors and Wall Street seem divided about the prospects for the green automaker.
