The Japanese concern Toyota Motor decided to recall more than 110 thousand vehicles in the domestic market due to a malfunction in the hybrid power plant.
The company said that 38 models, including the Prius, fell under the recall campaign. A total of 111,842 vehicles produced between April and August 2021 are subject to repair.
According to the Ministry of State Lands, Infrastructure and Transport, which must be notified of any vehicle recalls, the company has discovered a defect in the hybrid powertrain system that causes the engine to stop unexpectedly.
The company noted that they do not know about the cases of the accident and the victims in connection with this problem, therefore the recall is rather of a preventive nature.
