Porsche has announced a recall of over 40,000 Taycan electric vehicles worldwide. Porsche has recalled 40,421 Taycans EV manufactured between 10 July 2019 and 18 May 2021. According to reports these figures are about half of over 80,000 Porsche Taycans, in all variants, that have been sold cumulatively. The reason behind this callback is an issue related to the wiring harness of the driver’s and passenger’s seats.

It is being said that the wiring harness might get damaged during the longitudinal adjustment of the seat and if this happens, there is a chance that the airbags and seatbelt tensioners might get deactivated. This can lead to a safety issue for the users of the EV.

Porsche had stated that it would resolve the issue as the electric vehicle units were still under warranty. In the former case, around 43,000 Porsche Taycans were affected.
