The Porsche Taycan is facing another substantial recall, affecting over 40,000 vehicles worldwide.
According to reporting by Electrive, Porsche is recalling 40,421 Porsche Taycan vehicles produced between July 10, 2019, and May 18, 2021.
This substantial recall affects half of the current Porsche Taycan fleet.
The issue is with an internal code “ANA5”.
This code is related to the wiring harness of both the driver and passenger seat.
The wiring harness may be damaged during routine longitudinal adjustments of the seat.
The recall is similar to the Porsche recall in China.
If the wiring harness is damaged, there is a risk that the airbags and seatbelt tensioners could be deactivated.
As this is a safety issue, Porsche must issue a recall to ensure it is fixed on its vehicles.
Porsche will be contacting clients shortly on next steps.
It has been a tough couple of weeks for Porsche.
A few weeks ago, Porsche announced a recall for 43,000 Porsche Taycan vehicles that could experience a sudden loss of power.
The fix for that recall is a software update that needs to be done at a Porsche Service Center.
Recalls are never good, and for a company hoping to launch an IPO in the next few months, these recalls could not have come at a worse time.
