Hyundai was forced to issue a recall on the Ioniq EV in Korea just two months following its initial debut after a YouTube video was published that shows the vehicle rolling backwards when stopped on an incline.
After coming to a stop on the uphill parking exit, the driver takes his foot off the brake pedal and anticipates the hill start assist to keep the vehicle stationary. The vehicle instead begins to roll backward. The driver then presses the accelerator, but the Ioniq doesn't perform a hill start. Switching to the brake pedal brought the car to sa stop and avoided anything tragic from happening.
Hyundai has recalled Ioniqs made until March 14th for a software update.
