Tesla Inc. recalled some 475,000 cars in the U.S. -- nearly equivalent to its global deliveries last year -- because of technical defects that may increase the risk of accidents.

The company plans to recall all Model 3 vehicles made between 2017 and 2020 -- that’s as many as 356,309 cars. The cable harness for the rear-view camera may be damaged by opening and closing the trunk and prevent the image from displaying, it told the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
