In the case of the Audi e-tron, water can get into the all-electric SUV's high-voltage charging port, which could then make its way to the vehicle's electronics, resulting in a potential battery fire.

"We are applying an abundance of caution as no such incidents have been reported globally", the company said in a statement. "Audi e-tron vehicles unaffected by the recall remain available for delivery and our reservation system remains open to receive customer reservations". It is unclear if the campaign will delay further deliveries, as the fix is not expected to become available until August. If customers do see the warning light, or if they choose not to drive their vehicle affected by the recall, Audi will pick up their vehicle at a place of their choice and replace it with an unaffected E-tron whenever possible.

However, not many customers will be affected by it as only 540 of the 1,644 units sold have been delivered to customers. With the British electric vehicle, there is a problem with the software for the recuperation.
