The recall plan shows that from December 15, 2022, the recall of some EQC electric vehicles with production dates between December 5, 2019 and September 17, 2022 will be expanded, totaling 3,345 units. From February 1, 2023, an expanded recall of some EQA and EQB electric vehicles with a production date between February 11, 2020 and October 10, 2022, totaling 8,078 vehicles.

It is understood that due to the manufacturing deviation of the electric drive module, the cooling system in the electric drive module of some vehicles within the scope of this recall may have insufficient sealing, resulting in coolant leakage. If the coolant slightly seeps into the motor, the insulation resistance value of the high-voltage system may be reduced after long-term use, resulting in the vehicle not starting. In addition, under extreme conditions, the output power of the electric drive module of the vehicle will be reduced, posing a safety hazard.

In this regard, Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. will replace the improved electric drive module assembly for the vehicles within the recall scope free of charge through authorized dealers to eliminate potential safety hazards. The company also carried out emergency measures, that is, before the vehicle is recalled and repaired, if the user encounters relevant fault information prompts, they should promptly contact the Mercedes-Benz authorized service center for processing.
