General Motors has issued its first recall for the 2022 Hummer EV because of a problem with the electric truck’s taillights.

According to the recall notice posted to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) website, just 10 Hummer EVs are covered under the recall.

The notice says that in those 10 Hummer EVs, the embedded software in the taillamps might malfunction, causing one of both of them to either fail completely, or remain fully or partially illuminated.

If the unit fails all functions of the taillights, including the turn signal, backup lights, side markers, and clearance lamp will not work.

This means the Hummer EV fails to conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 108, “Lamps, reflective devices, and associated equipment.”

Affected owners can visit their local GM dealership to have the taillights inspected and replaced if necessary, at no cost.

GM says they are aware of three confirmed reports of the issue, but has received no reports of crashes caused by it.
