Hyundai Motor America is conducting a safety recall in the United States and Canada to address a potential condition with the electric vehicle (“EV”) lithium-ion (“Li-ion’) battery that could result in a fire in certain model year 2019 – 2020 Kona EV.
What is the safety recall?
The subject vehicles are equipped with battery cells manufactured in the LG Energy Solutions China (Nanjing) plant in which the Anode (Negative) tab can be folded. A folded Anode tab in the battery cell could allow the Lithium plating on the Anode tab to contact the Cathode resulting in an electrical short. An electrical short internally within battery cell(s) increases the risk of a vehicle fire while parked, charging and/or driving.
Hyundai previously issued Recall 196 which provided Hyundai dealers the ability to update software and inspect the lithium-ion battery, and replace if necessary, for Kona EV. Hyundai is now amending Recall 196 with Recall 200 and adding additional remedies.
Owners should park their vehicles outside and/or away from structures until the recall repair is completed.
What will Hyundai do?
Your Hyundai dealer will update the software of the Battery Management System (BMS) or replace the Battery System Assembly (BSA), if necessary. This procedure will be performed at NO CHARGE.
