Mumbai, June 8: Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL) has voluntarily recalled the flagship electric vehicle, the Ioniq 5, due to a faulty part. Over 1700 units of the flagship EV are affected by the recall due to a potential issue with the integrated charging control unit (ICCU). This recall has affected the EVs produced between January 2023 and April 2024. It's worth noting that the integrated charging unit (ICCU) essentially helps power electronic components like AC, infotainment and seat ventilation in the electric vehicle. The component functions as a converter to scale down the voltage from the main battery to the secondary battery (12V). Tata Altroz Racer Launched in India.

The South Korean automaker will fix the potential issue free of cost for the affected Ioniq 5 customers. The brand will reach the customers to inspect the vehicle at authorized dealerships.
