Tesla, under the leadership of Elon Musk, is recalling 120,423 vehicles in the United States. The recall is prompted by concerns related to cabin doors potentially unlocking during a crash, as announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). This comes on the heels of Tesla's largest-ever recall, impacting over 2 million vehicles on U.S. roads.

The focus of this particular recall is on 2021-2023 Model S and Model X vehicles. These models fall short of meeting specific federal safety standards, particularly those related to side-impact protection. Responding to the safety issue, Tesla has swiftly deployed an over-the-air (OTA) software update to address the concerns raised by the NHTSA.

This move follows last week's extensive recall, which aimed to introduce new safety features into Tesla's Autopilot advanced driver-assistance system. This decision was prompted by safety concerns flagged by federal regulators. The commitment to safety is evident in Tesla's proactive approach to identifying and addressing potential issues, ultimately prioritizing the safety and well-being of its vehicle occupants.
