Porsche Recalls the Taycan in the United States

Automatic hasard lights are too eager, NHTSA says

The Stuttgart-based automaker has just launched a recall campaign for the 2020 and 2021 models of its only pure electric car, the Taycan. The recall applies to the U.S. territory for now, but it wouldn’t be surprising if this measure eventually crossed the border.
According to the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) website, the problem that is causing this recall of 11,827 units of the electric car is related to hazard lights that would activate in non-emergency situations. This could be confusing to other motorists and potentially increase the risk of an accident.
All vehicles assembled between Oct. 21, 2019, and Sept. 17, 2021, do not meet federal auto safety standards, with automatic hazard lights that activate in pre-crash situations being the focus of this recall.
The automaker plans to revise the deployment of this device, which the automaker claims exceeds the automatic engagement criteria allowed by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) Rule 108.
At the time of writing, it’s too early to know what solution Porsche is planning to use to solve this little technical problem, but everything indicates that the device will be calibrated to meet American requirements. It remains to be seen whether Porsche Canada will also have to correct this issue.
