Kia Motors America has acted decisively in response to safety concerns by starting a recall effort for a limited number of Niro EV vehicles built in the 2022 model year. This preventative action was taken in response to previous events when high-voltage battery safety plugs melted, which prompted a thorough investigation by Kia’s Safety Office.

Working closely with Kia Corporation in South Korea, the safety team meticulously examined the issue to determine its root cause. Through this collaborative effort, they identified a manufacturing deviation in the female-female terminal as the primary culprit behind the safety plug overheating.
