Auburn Hills, MI – February 26, 2023 – Volkswagen (OTCMKTS:VWAGY) is recalling 20,904 2021 Volkswagen ID.4 electric cars whose motors may lose power while driving. This ups the risk of a crash and injury.
The ID.4 is driven by an electric motor, which gets its power from a battery pack. The power delivery between the two is controlled by a computer called high voltage (HV) battery management control module, which ensures this is done optimally.
In the affected vehicles, the control module that operates the battery and corresponding components may reset because of a software error. If that happens while driving, the vehicle may stall.
Stalling increases the risk of a crash and injury, especially if it happens on a highway.
