Tesla has recalled more than 1900 examples of the 2014-2020 Model S electric sedan to fix a problem with the bonnet latch.

“Due to a manufacturing issue the secondary bonnet latch may be located in the incorrect position, this could prevent the secondary latch from engaging as designed,” the recall notice says.

“If the primary latch is released and the secondary latch is not engaged the bonnet may open without warning. This increases the risk of an accident causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users.”

The Model S doesn’t have an engine, but it does have a storage space beneath its bonnet.

  • A total of 1912 vehicles are included in the recall
  • A VIN list of affected vehicles is attached here
  • The original recall notice is attached here

Owners will be contacted when parts are available, and will be advised to organise a free fix with Tesla Service using the phone app.
