What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Hyundai Ioniq Electric vehicles from model year 2020, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
“The lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery may short-circuit,” NHTSA said. “An electrical short in the Li-ion battery increases the risk of a fire.”
Hyundai is notifying owners who, as an interim action, have the option to follow provided instructions to perform a battery update through the vehicle’s infotainment system or request a Hyundai dealer to provide the update.
Once parts are available, dealers will inspect the Battery System Assembly (BSA), and replace it if necessary, free of charge.
Owners are advised to park their vehicles outside and away from structures until the interim action is complete.
This recall began on April 9, 2021.
