If you have a 2019 or 2020 Hyundai Kona or a 2020 Hyundai Ioniq electric vehicle, it is available for recall. The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued the recall after more than a dozen battery fire reports. You may want to park outside the garage.
According to the NHTSA, the problem stems from an electrical short in the EV̵
For now, you can take your car to a dealer to lower the load limit to reduce the risk of fire. Ultimately, Hyundai plans to replace the batteries for free. In total, Hyundai plans to recall more than 80,000 vehicles worldwide. You can go to NHTSA and enter your chassis number to see if your car is one of the recalled ones. Hyundai vehicles from 2021 are not affected by the problem.
Hyundai says it will begin a full recall at the end of April.
