In China, Porsche recalls more than 6,000 Taycan electric vehicles 1

According to a report recently published by CnEVPost, Porsche has indeed imported 6,172 Taycan electric cars for the 2020 and 2021 model years into China. The new recall occurred about a month after the previous recall campaign related to Taycan.

Cars with potential problems were produced between January 7, 2020, and March 29, 2021. The State Administration of China for Market Regulation (SAMR) announced that Porsche will officially begin the recall process on July 30, 2022.

The detected issue of the Porsche Taycan concerns problems with the wiring harnesses of the front seats. When adjusting the seats, the harness shell may catch on the drive shaft of the seat adjustment mechanism. If this happens, the wiring harness may not just suffer: there is a possibility that the additional restraint system, will not work properly, and this is already a direct security threat. After all, it is obvious that the failure of the restraint system increases the likelihood of injury in the event of an accident.

Porsche plans to check seat wiring harnesses on all recalled vehicles at its dealers for free. If the harness is damaged or disconnected, Porsche will repair or replace it. And he will make sure that it is laid in such a way that it cannot be damaged in the future.

CnEVPost notes that Porsche has recently recalled the Taycan in China – in May 2022. The previous recall campaign also concerned more than 6,000 electric vehicles: the possibility of incorrect laying of the rear seat belts was found, which could cause problems with installing a child seat in the Taycan. About a year ago, Porsche also recalled about 6000 Taycan due to transmission issues – there was a communication problem with the electronic control software.

Like many other electric cars, the Taycan sells well in China. However, sales are held back by its high price: according to the Chinese Porsche website, the Taycan in China costs 898,000 yuan ($134,000).
