German authority initiates proceedings against Tesla


        Problems with the central input screen in Tesla cars have brought the German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) to the scene.  According to information from "Bild am Sonntag", the authority has initiated proceedings against the electric car manufacturer.  <a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a><p>&nbsp;The&nbsp; KBA asked the US group to provide the authority with information about possible safety risks of the touch-sensitive screen in the center console of various model series.        </p><div>
        <p><a href=""><img class="alignnone size-medium" src="" alt="©" width="400" height="20" /></a><p>&nbsp;The&nbsp; US traffic authority NHTSA asked Tesla to recall these safety risks in mid-January.  Around 158,000 of Tesla's older S and X models built between 2012 and 2018 are affected.</p>            

Specifically, it is about storage space problems with certain computer chips, which can lead to failure of the central touchscreen screen, which is used to operate various vehicle functions.

 The  US authorities warned about impairments of the reversing camera or the driver assistance program.

A KBA spokesman said “Bild am Sonntag”: “©

 The  Federal Motor Transport Authority has been informed about the facts, it is in contact with the NHTSA and has initiated the examination. ©

 The  result of the examination is still pending.”

It remained unclear how many cars in Germany could be affected. Inquiries from KBA and Tesla initially went unanswered on Sunday.
