Mercedes-Benz is recalling two of its plug-in hybrid models due to an electrical fault.
The company has issued a recall for its 2019-20 C300e and GLC300e models as “the shielding of the high-voltage wiring harness may not be able to prevent electrical overload”.
“As a result,” the company says in its recall notice, “a contact point of the high-voltage wiring harness to the power electronics may overload.”
“If this occurs, there could be a loss of the vehicle’s electronics.
“If the vehicle electronics malfunction, the vehicle may stall, increasing the risk of a crash, causing injury or death to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.”
- A total of seven vehicles are affected.
- Affected vehicles were available for sale from 1 July 2020 to 18 August 2020.
