January 12: VW calls back a small number of electric-ups as a precaution
Volkswagen is recalling a small number of the small electric car Up due to the risk of fire on the battery cells. So far, no incidents are known, but the action was taken as a precaution, it said on Friday from Wolfsburg. According to the Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA), it concerns 122 cars that were built last year – including 81 affected E-Ups in Germany.
The KBA is monitoring the recall. According to the authority, short circuits or fires could occur “due to previous damage to the battery cells”. Volkswagen announced that it would replace the batteries in the vehicles it inspected – manufactured in May and June 2020.
“In connection with the battery production for the E-Up, we cannot rule out in individual cases that individual battery cells may have been damaged during a manual follow-up inspection of the cell modules,” the manufacturer continued. “As a result, an insulation fault can occur when operating the vehicle, which in rare cases can lead to a short circuit in the battery system.” In the past few years, there had been dangerous battery fires on some smartphones or mobile chargers.
