In the US, Land Rover Discovery Sport and Range Rover Evoque cars, which have a 48-volt mild-hybrid system, were recalled. This information on Wednesday, November 18, was shared by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

The recall campaign concerns 2,683 Evoque cars and 365 Discovery Sport cars that rolled off the assembly line from November 2, 2018 to October 2 this year.

As the department informs, the recall is due to the fact that the MOSFET transistor may fail due to an electrical overload in the system, as a result of which the DCDC converter may break down, as a result, a short circuit will occur and the risk of fire will increase. It is possible that even in the cabin they will smell burning or smoke.

In the official service centers of the British brand, specialists will install new software on the recalled machines, as a result of which the problem will be eliminated. It is noted that the owners of vehicles that have come under the recall will not have to pay for repair work.
