Electric cars of the American brand are stopped after a server failure. Elon Musk is on it.
Tesla boss Elon Musk said Friday evening that a check was underway, while a server outage appears to be affecting some of the brand’s vehicles, which may have prevented their owners from starting, according to accounts on Twitter. .
“I’m checking,” Elon Musk replied on Twitter to a South Korean Tesla user who said he was facing a server problem connecting his Tesla Model 3 to his Apple app. This driver explained that he could not start his car with his phone, but only thanks to the key in the form of a card that he had with him.
“I am one of them”
Other testimonials on Twitter refer to this outage: “I’m stuck an hour away from home because I normally use my phone to start my car”, “I can’t open my car”.
“HUNDREDS of Tesla owners are stuck out of their cars… I am one of them. They said we would help the environment by owning an electric car, but + walking + is not what I was thinking, ”joked another user, explaining that he did have his card, but that it was remained in the passenger compartment of the car.
The outage seems global, identical testimonies having been reported on the social network from several countries, including the United States, Canada, Denmark, or even Germany.
