Toronto, Ontario — Porsche AG is recalling 43,000 of its electric Taycan vehicles over a software issue that can cause the engine to abruptly turn off, reported Reuters.
The recall affects all Taycan cars made and delivered by June, 2021, the automaker said Friday.
According to Reuters, Porsche executive Klaus Rechberger said the issue has been found in approximately 130 vehicles. Noting that no accidents were reported to have happened from the issue.
In order to fix the problem a software update is necessary. However, an over-the-air software update is not possible, which means owners will have to visit a repair centre to resolve the issue.
This recall comes only a year after the Taycan was first launched.
