Tesla has filed a report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stating that it will replace the parking brake valve module in its electric vehicles with an updated part. The revised module is designed with improved internals to prevent air leakage and improve the driver’s ability to engage and disengage the parking brakes.
Meanwhile, Tesla is gearing up to release its first-quarter 2023 vehicle production and delivery report this weekend. While the report is expected to highlight strong growth in deliveries of Tesla’s popular Model 3 and Model Y vehicles, it remains unclear whether the report will provide any new details on the production and delivery of the company’s heavy-duty Semi trucks.
Tesla’s Semi has generated significant buzz since its unveiling in 2017, and the company has reportedly received pre-orders from major corporations such as Walmart, PepsiCo, and Anheuser-Busch. However, Tesla has not previously broken out Semi production and delivery numbers in its quarterly updates, leaving investors and industry analysts guessing about the progress of this highly anticipated vehicle.
As Tesla continues to expand its product line and production capacity, the company faces growing scrutiny from regulators and consumers alike. However, with its innovative technology and loyal fan base, Tesla remains a major force in the electric vehicle market and a key player in the transition to sustainable transportation.
