An electrical component that many not have been installed properly and could lead to the risk of a fire prompted Hyundai on Tuesday to recall about 10,600 hybrid and plug-in vehicles. The recall covers 2017 and 2018 Hyundai Ioniq hybrids and 2018 Ioniq Plug-In Hybrid vehicles. At fault is one of the three power relays connected to the hybrid system’s battery and inverter capacitor, which Hyundai said may come loose and increase electrical resistance. In such as situation, Hyundai said in government filings that the risk of a fire starting under the rear seat where the power relay assembly is located increases as a result of the loose component.
