Arcimoto recalled 181 model year 2019-2020 FUVs and model year 2020 Deliverators due to potential safety risk.
The electronic drivers in some of the high voltage (HV) contactors may malfunction and overheat, which could cause the battery to shutdown.
An unexpected battery shutdown can cause a loss of motive power, increasing the risk of a crash.
Arcimoto will notify owners, while a factory technician will replace the contactors and related components, free of charge.
The recall began March 29, 2021.
There have been no reported incidents to date.
