SEOUL, Feb. 21 (Yonhap) — Hyundai Motor Co., Tesla Korea and four other carmakers will recall nearly 55,000 vehicles due to faulty components, the transport ministry said Wednesday.

The six companies, including Kia Corp., Ford Sales & Service Korea, GS Global Corp. and Bumhan Mobility, are voluntarily recalling a total of 54,792 units of 19 different models, the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport said in a statement.
