Tesla Motors Recalls All Model S EVs for Bad Safety Belts


Tesla Motors is recalling all 2012-2015 Model S EVs because of a safety defect on driver or front passenger seat belts that may correctly connected to the outboard lap pretensioners. Tesla has known about the problem since last April but initially dismissed it claiming there was “no indication” that the potentially deadly defect  occurred on any other Model S.

In November, a customer in Denmark said that the front passenger seat belt had become disconnected during normal use. The Model S was not involved in a crash and the safety defect did not result in any injury, Tesla said in the required NHTSA filing.
