Urgent recall for luxury Mercedes-Benz EQE and EQS electric vehicle models over worrying loss of power issue

Mercedes-Benz is recalling more than 1,400 of its luxury electric vehicles after discovering a serious battery fault that could lead to a sudden loss of power while driving.

Tuesday’s recall affects 1,465 Mercedes-Benz EQE and EQS electric vehicle models sold in Australia, which could cost more than $200,000.

A similar battery fault was discovered in the same vehicles in China and the United States and can cause an abrupt stop to propulsion.

“A software issue in the battery management system may cause deactivation of the high-voltage battery,” the recall notice said.

‘A loss of propulsion while driving can increase the risk of a crash resulting in injury or death to the vehicle occupants.’

The recall comes just three months after a recall of 1,983 Mercedes-Benz vehicles in Australia, including EQE and EQS models, due to a manufacturing defect in their fuse boxes.
