Tesla Recall Unlikely to Affect Europe Due to Differences in Autopilot Systems

European autopilot software diverges from US version, reducing impact of major recall across the Atlantic

No Plans for Similar Recall in Europe

Tesla has initiated a major recall encompassing 2 million vehicles in its home market of the United States. The update will prompt clearer warnings from the Autopilot system to ensure drivers remain attentive. Naturally this raised concerns among Tesla owners in Europe as well. However, a comparable recall is unlikely to take place in Europe according to statements by the Dutch vehicle authority RDW.

Autopilot Systems Have Key Variances

In an official announcement, RDW stated that Europe will not be affected by this US recall campaign. The reason being fundamental differences between the Autopilot software versions used in the EU and North America. Both regions classify Tesla vehicles as "Level 2" automation. But within that level, distinctions exist between the two continents. For example, Teslas have had to undergo improvements to driver assistance systems before being approved for Europe - limiting the potential for abuse of Autopilot.

RDW spokespeople assert that Tesla's autonomous technologies meet EU standards.

Recall Originated Over Safety Concerns in US

The recall in the US was initiated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ( NHTSA) which has spent years investigating Tesla. The NHTSA argued that Autopilot does not provide adequate feedback to drivers. By enhancing alerts when Autopilot or Autosteer are active, Tesla aims to address those concerns across nearly 2 million US vehicles.
