Mercedes recalls EQC electric cars on potentially faulty bolts

On Tuesday, the 29th of October 2019, the German multinational automotive giant, Daimler AG, headquartered in Stuttgart, Baden-Württemberg, had issued a public statement saying it would be recalling 1,700 of its luxury brand Mercedes’s new Mercedes-Benz EQC e-vehicles due to a potentially glitchy bolt in their differentials, which controls rotation of wheels during taking turns.

In point of fact, Tuesday’s (October 29th) recall of Daimler AG’s new Mercedes-Benz EQC e-vehicles comes over the heels of an earlier report by a German publication, kfz betrieb, which had first reported the issue and prompted the Stuttgart-based carmaker to initiate a recall of as many as 1,700 vehicles.

On top of that, according to the report from Kfz betrieb that published earlier this week, the bolts in the differentials of the Mercedes-Benz EQC’s electric vehicles could break automatically during taking turns, which in effect had forced Daimler to ask for the recall and to rework the e-vehicles as beforementioned.

Apart from that, while being asked over the recall, Daimler AG had declined to comment given the upscaled competition in the e-vehicle market, but a spokesman for Daimler AG had been quoted saying late on Tuesday (October 29th) on condition of anonymity that the repairs would likely to be involved all of the Mercedes-Benz EQC, nonetheless, the bolt could easily be fitted, added the spokesman downplaying the risks involved at the e-vehicles’ differentials.
