Hyundai Kona’s emergency recall is due to fire hazards
Not only gasoline-powered vehicles have fire hazards, but electric vehicles also have fire hazards. When a part is overworked, it is especially prone to fire.
Recently, Hyundai Kona electric crossover was urgently recalled for this reason. In the United States, the developer conducts a voluntary recall through NHTSA.
At present, the developer has issued a recall notice to the outside world, and all relevant vehicles will be tested.
The recall was due to a combustion accident involving 13 Kona Electric crossovers. The developer and the battery supplier tested it and found out the reason. The developer believes that the battery was manufactured incorrectly which caused the short circuit.
It is unclear how many vehicles will be recalled in the United States, and older vehicles are also in the scope of this recall.
