Inchcape, the Australian distributor for Peugeot, is recalling the 508 GT Fastback Plug-In Hybrid and 3008 GT Sport Plug-In Hybrid in two separate recall notices centred around their high-voltage batteries.

The first recall notice affects 108 examples of the 508 GT Fastback Plug-In Hybrid and 3008 GT Sport Plug-In Hybrid produced between 2021 and 2022.

“Due to a software program error, the battery management system software may cause the high-voltage battery to overheat and/or emit smoke,” said the company in its recall notice.

“If left unrepaired, this may result in a potential battery or vehicle fire whilst the vehicle is being recharged and/or in use.”

The second recall notice affects 106 examples of the 508 GT Fastback Plug-In Hybrid and 3008 GT Sport Plug-In Hybrid produced between 2021 and 2022.

“Due to a manufacturing issue, certain plug-in hybrid electric vehicles may not have had the high-voltage battery reinforcing plate or battery cover coated with a protective wax,” said the company in its recall notice.

“If water intrudes, there is a risk of perforation or corrosion of the battery reinforcing plate/battery cover over the life of the vehicle.”
