So, maybe there are surplus SK batteries for us in EuropeThe recall starts on March 29th 2021, but it will take some time to roll out completely.
1: They have to make 80,000+ new batteries and they have to makes sure the problem doesn't happen again.
2: The logistics alone is a nightmare. The batteries are classed as Hazmat, and can only be surface freighted.
3: Dealers need to be supplied with the lifting hoist and some other kit.
4: It still hasn't been decided who will pay the most, LG or Hyundai
Since no vehicles have caught fire that use the SK batteries, the ideal scenario would be to fit SK batteries rather than LG. However SK are banned in the USA for now, after they lost a court case started by LG for patent infringements.
I only home charge to 80% so I'm not in the least worried. The chance of a fire is 0.018% So Hyundai have really gone all out to protect their reputation.
