Tesla is recalling more than 1 million vehicles in China due to a braking and accelerating defect. 

According to the filing with the state administration for market regulation, the issue involves the vehicles’ regenerative braking system. The recall says the vehicles may not produce enough of a warning when a driver depresses the accelerator pedal for a long time, which may increase the risk of a crash.

The recall impacts 1,104,622 vehicles and includes some imported Model S, Model X and Model 3 vehicles as well as domestically produced Model 3 and Model Y vehicles produced between Jan.12, 2019 and April 24, 2023. 

Vehicle owners will receive a notification about repairs, which are expected to be fixed with an over-the-air software update.

In February in the U.S., Tesla recalled more than 362,000 vehicles with Full Self Driving software due to a crash risk at intersections. In 2022, Tesla was the focus of several recalls as concerns about its Full Self Driving software grew.
