Media: Tesla has blamed drivers for factory defects

Tesla has known for years that there were defects in several parts for the brand's cars. Even so, attempts have been made to shift the blame to motorists, the media write.

Tesla has known for years that they sent defective cars onto the street. When the owners have complained about it, the brand has tried to abdicate the blame anyway.

And not only that. Tesla has directly tried to blame the owners. The news agency Reuters writes this based on a number of internal documents from Tesla.

The faults lie in a number of the components which connect the wheels to the cars. In China, Tesla has had to recall cars due to the defects.

And it is rumored from Norway that the mistakes have almost cost the brand bankruptcy. Tesla is said to have even gone so far as to instruct technicians to blame defective control arms and other undercarriage failures directly on customers.

However, the accusations from Reuters have prompted Tesla to respond again. Incidentally, this is not the first time that Tesla has hit back at a Reuters story.

As recently as April, Elon Musk said that Reuters is lying when the media writes that he and the brand have put the plans for 'a very cheap' Tesla Model 2 on hold.

Reuters subsequently added the Tesla executive's response to their own article on the matter. In the same vein, however, the media noted that Elon Musk has not addressed any 'specific inaccuracies' in the story.

However, that is not the only interesting new thing from Tesla-land this time around. The car brand has to get rid of more than 10 percent of all its employees.

Some of the firings have included Elon Musk. found by closing entire departments. Among other things, everyone who works with Tesla's charging network has received a notice of dismissal. However, the director later received a lot of criticism for this. Read more about it here .
