US electric car maker Tesla will recall 53,822 vehicles produced between 2016 and 2022 due to a bug in its autonomous driving software that concerns braking in front of a stop sign, according to a release from the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Certain Model S and Model X brand vehicles from 2016-2022, Model 3 from 2017-2022 and Model Y from 2020-2022 are subject to the recall, the release said.

It is noted that the "rolling stop" feature, available in Full Self-Driving software, can allow the vehicle to drive through a sign that prohibits non-stop driving without coming to a complete stop. A report says Tesla will release a software update to disable the rolling stop feature.

Tesla Motors, situated in California, was created in 2003 as an electric vehicles manufacturer. In addition to electric automobiles, the firm develops its own technology for batteries and electric motors, which it sells to other automakers, including Toyota and Daimler.
