Audi Recalls 1644 e-Tron SUVs Globally

Audi e-tron recall affects US EVs What you need to know

If an e-tron is not available, Audi will provide a auto with an internal-combustion engine and an $800 cash card for higher fuel costs and other expenses incurred.

Audi is clearly looking for mainstream appeal with its new E-Tron electric crossover. The company isn't aware of any fires or injuries because of the flaw, he said.

The defect can allow water to enter the battery compartment and potentially cause an electrical short circuit or a "thermal event" in extreme cases. In order to ensure the highest levels of safety and quality for our customers, we have issued a voluntary recall affecting approximately 540 e-tron vehicles that have been delivered to customers and 1,644 in total. Vehicle pickup and delivery service are also included.

In fact Audi recalled 75,000 petrol engined cars just last month due to a potential fuel injection fault that could pose a fire risk and it is far from alone, with Ford, Hyundai and Toyota all issuing recalls for more than a million vehicles each due to fire risk in the past few years.

The Problem: This Tesla Model X-competitor is under recall for a potential issue involving the regenerative braking system. According to a recall notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website, if the regenerative-braking systems on the affected I-Pace vehicles fail, there will be a delay between when the driver presses the brake pedal and when the vehicle begins to slow down.

"We are applying an abundance of caution as no such incidents [fires] have been reported globally", Audi said in its statement.

Audi of America said on Monday that it is recalling the e-tron to replace a wiring grommet between the charging port and the battery that is part of the wiring assembly. A total of 1,644 E-Trons have been shipped to the USA, and the remainder will be fixed before being handed to customers.
