Volkswagen Electric & Hybrid Vehicle Might Get Recalled

By  | 

Nothing has been decided yet but Volkswagen might have to recall their electric and hybrid vehicles from 2013 to 2018 after it was discovered that the vehicles might have cadmium in it, a carcinogenic metal.

According to the reports, a supplier has been delivering battery chargers with cadmium to Volkswagen and these chargers have been used in a number of electric and hybrid models from Volkswagen, Audi and Porshe.

Although the vehicles do come with cadmium, it does not pose any immediate danger to the drivers because it is well-insulated from the atmosphere. Since discovering the issue, Volkswagen has stopped taking orders for Golf GTE so that they can replace the part with a new part from another supplier.

As for the other 124,000 models, KBA still has not decided if they are going to issue a recall or not. If they do, this would slow down Volkswagen electric journey but it will not do as much of a damage as the diesel scandal.
