Beijing Benz expands recall of tens of thousands of electric vehicles involving EQA, EQB and EQC models

  China News Service, October 28th. According to the website of the State Administration for Market Regulation on the 28th, Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. recently issued a notice to Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. The State Administration for Market Regulation has filed a recall plan to expand the recall of some EQA, EQB and EQC electric vehicles. This recall is an expanded recall of the “Beijing Benz Automobile Co., Ltd. recalls some EQC electric vehicles” released on February 18, 2022.

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

  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. (Zhongxin Finance)
