Tesla Inc. has issued a recall for nearly 1.1 million vehicles covering all four of its models because the power windows may close too fast and could pinch a driver or passengers, according to a US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration filing.

The electric carmaker plans to fix the problem with an over-the-air update, so vehicle owners do not need to wait for service to be done. The recall covers Model S, X, 3 and Y vehicles made in various model years from 2017 to 2022, NHTSA said in the filing dated Sept. 19 and released Thursday.
