Elon Musk's Tesla recalls 2 million cars in US over Autopilot defect

The recall applies to all Tesla sold in the US since the Autopilot feature was launched in 2015.

Most importantly, the recall centres on a part of Autopilot called Autosteer.

However, Tesla defended the safety of Autopilot in a post on Twitter in response to a Washington Post article

According to the recall notice, Tesla plans to add new features to resolve the concerns, including additional checks on turning on the self-driving features.

Analysts predicts that Tesla's most advanced Autopilot offering, full self driving, could end up generating over $50bn a year in revenue by 2030, up from $1bn-$3bn.
