Tesla to make Another Recall, Says Chinese Regulator

The State Administration for Market Supervision in China said Tesla, Inc. (NASDAQ: TSLA) will recall 127,785 units of its Model 3 vehicles in the country due to some defect in semiconductor components, StreetInsider.com said in a report.

The EV giant said that the fault is not a manufacturing defect but a design flaw and could cause collisions.

The recall will include Model 3 cars produced between January 2019 and January 2022. Of these 127,785 vehicles, 93,578 were manufactured at the company’s Giga facility in Shanghai and 34,207 were imported from Fremont, California.

According to Tesla, the driver will not be able to start the vehicle if the semiconductor component fails when the car is parked. Also, the car will lose its driving power if the component fails when the vehicle is in motion.

Consensus Rating

Overall, the stock has a Moderate Buy consensus rating based on 15 Buys, five Holds and six Sells. TSLA’s average price target of $1,005.64 implies 4.9% downside potential. Shares have gained 54.6% over the past year.
