Hyundai has recalled the 2019-20 Ioniq Electric due to a fault with its battery.

It coincides with a recall of the Kona Electric for the same issue.

“Due to a manufacturing defect, the battery does not meet specifications and may lead to an electrical short which could start a fire,” the company says in its recall notice.

“A vehicle fire may increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, bystanders and/or damage to property.”

If you own an affected vehicle, you’ll need to take it to a Hyundai dealer.

Technicians will perform a software check to identify a particular hardware issue. If this issue is found in your car, Hyundai will replace the battery.

If you have any further questions, you can contact Hyundai Customer Care on 1800 186 306.
