All The Proof You Need That It’s Too Soon For Mass Electric Vehicle Adoption
(AmericanProsperity.com) – As the world looks to produce more alternative-fuel cars, the most popular appear to be electric-powered vehicles (EV). Given the success Tesla has had in the industry, it’s not surprising manufacturers like Ford, GM, and other major car producers are hopping on the EV trend. However, several manufacturers appear to be having problems with their electric models and have recalled hundreds, and even thousands, of vehicles due to safety concerns.

Ford, Hyundai, and Kia have all issued recalls on their EVs. Ford’s Mustang Mach-E appears to have an issue with its powertrain control module, according to Fox News. The EV can randomly accelerate, decelerate, and even completely lose power while in motion. While Fox reported that only 464 Mach-Es are subjected to the recall, owners can download the necessary update themselves over-the-air or take it to a dealership.
Kia and Hyundai share an EV platform, and both manufacturers recalled their respective models, Kia’s EV6 and Hyundai’s Ioniq 5, due to a rollaway risk as the cars can randomly disengage the vehicle’s parking mechanism. Kia and Hyundai are recalling far more EVs than Ford did, with Hyundai recalling 10,729 Ioniq 5s and Kia recalling 9,014 EV6s. Unlike Ford’s Mustang Mach-E, owners of the EV6 or Ioniq 5 will need to take their EVs to dealerships to remedy the problem.
