Toyota Motor Corp. is recalling over 2.4 million Prius vehicles worldwide, including 800,000 in the U.S., over problems with the electric-gas hybrid system, the company said in a statement.
Globally, the recall will affect Prius models from 2008 to the 2014. In the U.S., it will cover the larger Prius V cars from 2012 to 2014 and Prius models from 2010 to 2014.
In some instances, Toyota’s hybrid system did not enter into the “failsafe” driving model as intended, causing the vehicle to lose power and stall.
