Rollaway risk prompts huge Hyundai Ioniq and Kia EV6 recall

Hyundai and Kia are recalling their first mass-produced electric cars for the U.S. due to an increased rollaway risk.

The recall encompasses 10,729 Hyundai Ioniq 5 and 9,014 Kia EV6 models from the 2022 model year.

The vehicles can then no longer be in the parked position, which can increase the risk of a rollaway incident.Read the original article.
