35 Tesla Semis Recalled Over Faulty Parking Brakes

Tesla has issued a recall for 35 of its new electric Semi trucks because the parking brake might not engage when applied by the driver and said it is not aware of any crash or injury that the problem might have caused, Peter Valdes-Dapena reported for CNN.


Photo Insert: The danger, caused by a valve module that could leak air, is that the Semi truck could roll away if the driver parks the truck or takes their foot off the brake believing that the parking brake is activated.

Bendix, a Tesla parts supplier, informed the automaker of a possible problem on February 13, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).



Tesla investigated the issue and decided to file a recall on 35 of the large electric trucks.


Tesla delivered its first Semi trucks only late last year to PepsiCo, five years after the truck was first unveiled. PepsiCo reportedly has 36 of the trucks but Tesla has not said, in total, how many of the trucks have been delivered.

There have been numerous reports of Tesla Semi trucks breaking down on the road. Tesla has also faced other recalls, some of which could be fixed by a simple over-the-air software update but others would require mechanical work.


The Tesla Semi also has an unusual design in which the driver sits at the center of the cab.
