Due to a Tesla app outage, drivers are locked out of their vehicles.

After users reported being stranded, Elon Musk said the company will ‘take measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again.’

Tesla drivers were stranded for hours on Friday due to an outage on the company’s mobile app, which prevented them from unlocking their cars with their phones.

Drivers complained on Twitter that they couldn’t open or start their electric vehicles because of an error message.

At just after 9 p.m. GMT, there were 42 reports on the outage tracking site DownDetector, according to the BBC. Around 500 users reported an error on the app.

“I’m stuck an hour away from home because I normally use my phone to start the car,” one owner wrote on Twitter.

Now should be the time for you to reconnect with the internet.

It appears that we have inadvertently increased the verbosity of network traffic.

Please accept our apologies; we will take steps to ensure this does not happen again.

“I’m getting a 500 server error when trying to connect my @tesla,” another user said.

This appears to be a global issue.

Elon Musk’s Twitter handle is @elonmusk.

Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla and a fan of the social media site, responded directly, saying he was “checking” the problem and then returning to say it was “coming back online now.”

“We will take steps to ensure this does not happen again,” the multibillionaire entrepreneur added.

Mr Musk, 50, sparked outrage earlier this month when he sold around (dollar)5 billion (£3.7 billion) of shares after a Twitter poll in which followers voted for him to sell 10% of his stake.

Following a push by some Democrats to make billionaires pay taxes when the value of the stocks they own increases, he proposed selling the stock.

Mr Musk’s (dollar)281.6 billion fortune is largely based on Tesla stock, making him the world’s richest man, according to Forbes.
