Porsche has issued a recall notice globally for its Taycan vehicles over the loss of power issue by its EV hero car.
Stemming from a software issue in the power electronics and engine control units, the faulty software can cause a sudden engine shut-down.
According to Reuters, Klaus Rechberger, Porsche executive said the problem had been observed in around 130 cars and there were no accidents caused.
Totalling to 43,000 Taycan units sold worldwide, the recall affects all Taycan cars produced and delivered by June. It was added that a software update will be installed to fix the issue but Porsche indicates that a wireless software update would be impossible in this case. Therefore, Taycan owners will have to visit a local repair centre to fix the problem.
The two models of Taycan, Cross Turismo and Sports Saloon are available in Malaysia for RM584,561. As of date, there is no recall notification issued by Porsche Malaysia.
