Dec. 15, 2022—A recall has been issued for a coolant leak in some Kia Niro EV models, according to CarScoops.
The recall includes 872 vehicles from the 2020 model year. Reportedly, the Electric Power Control Unit in these models "may have been produced by a supplier with improper sealing, meaning coolant could internally leak in the EPCU and contact its circuit board," Kia said, according to CarScoops.
The existence of this issue could lead to the EV stalling. There have been no crashes or injuries reported to Kia. There have also been no fires or fatalities reported. Owners included in the recall should expect to be informed by Jan. 31, 2023.
