Audi recalls 1,644 E-Tron electric SUVs for wiring leak

Audi announced on Monday that it will recall 1,644 Audi E-Tron EV crossovers. Approximately 540 of the recalled vehicles are already in customer hands, while the remainder are already at dealers or in transit to dealerships. It's worth noting that this is not a stop-sale; Audi will continue E-Tron sales during the recall.

The problem stems from the vehicle's wiring -- specifically, a grommet on the wiring assembly between the charging plug port and the battery. The grommet may allow moisture buildup, and if too much moisture accumulates, the vehicle may throw a warning light or, in a worst-case scenario, start a fire. Audi was quick to note that no "thermal events" have been discovered since the car's introduction, but moisture sensors in the wiring harness have detected buildup in five cases globally since the model's debut.
