The recall affects any TeslaModel X with fold-flat second row seats that were produced between October 28, 2016, and August 16, 2017, the AP reports. If improperly installed, the latch may not properly engage the seat, causing it and passengers seated into it to dislodge from the vehicle during a crash.
The automaker said that it discovered the issue during internal testing.
Owners of impacted units will be notified by Tesla.
"We can address 100 per cent of these repairs via mobile service, and customers will have the choice to do that or to bring their vehicle into a Service Centre". As it has in the past, the company says the voluntarily recall is being "out of an abundance of caution".

Because Tesla does not reveal region-specific sales numbers, it also does not offer details on the number of vehicles affected by this recall in Australia.
Tesla Model X had a similar seat problem before.
"We will be conducting a voluntary recall to inspect the affected vehicles and confirm whether any adjustment is needed", the company said in an emailed statement. In an email to customers, Tesla said the left back seat may not be able to lock properly in the upright position due to cables that were tightened too much. Tesla's going to use mobile fix services for this job.
According to the auto manufacturer the issue affects three per cent of Model X vehicles that are configured with fold-flat second row seats, that were manufactured during that period of time. Model X has received the highest rating in every category and subcategory in independent crash tests conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, and we are committed to ensuring that Model X remains the safest SUV in the world.
