Earlier this month all of the Polestar 2 electric vehicles that had been sold since its launch this summer were recalled due to a critical software issue. The problem resulted in the vehicle suddenly losing power and shutting down while driving.

To fix the issue, owners had to visit a service center for a manual software update.

Now with more vehicles delivered almost a month later, Polestar is issuing another recall over faulty components that impacts 4,600 owners.

“Polestar has initiated a voluntary safety recall and a service campaign that contains a number of updates for Polestar 2 vehicles. The recall involves the replacement of faulty inverters on most delivered customer vehicles,” the automaker said in a statement.

According to the statement, all of the parts can be replaced in a single visit to a service center.

Despite promises the Polestar 2 would arrive in North America in September, reservation holders in Canada and the US are still waiting for their deliveries.

The company has started test drives in Canada, with customers able to book times online in Vancouver, Montreal, and Toronto.
