Major Kona recall. Battery pack failures and fires.

Post by electronique » Sun Oct 11, 2020 3:52 pm

More than 25,000 electric Konas in South Korea recalled over fires and battery pack failures. Software will be updated and battery packs replaced according to Reuters. Apparently there are similar plans for the USA.
Why not the UK I wonder ? Maybe because potential damage awards are higher in the USA ?
Does the popular Kia e-niro share the drive train and battery pack ?
Just when I was considering going electric.
