Software Issue Leads to Recall of Hyundai Ioniq 5, Kia EV6

The American divisions of Korean manufacturers Hyundai and Kia have announced the recall of the new Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 electric models in order to fix a software glitch that can cause an issue with the gear selector.  

Specifically, a software error in the shifter's control unit can disengage the parking mechanism, so the vehicle could roll away without warning, even if it's parked in a perfectly flat spot with the shifter in the "P" position.

Hyundai recommends using the electronic parking brake until a solution is implemented. The solution consists of a software update to the control unit. For its part, Kia recommends parking on level ground and avoiding sloping or inclined areas whenever possible.

The Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6 are some of the most popular electric models at the moment. Already, and despite supply constraints, 10,729 Ioniq 5s and 9,014 EV6s are in circulation and potentially affected by the recall.
