Hyundai officially announced a recall for the Hyundai Nexo hydrogen electric car technology sold in the United States.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) document number 22V228000, this recall is intended for 2019 Hyundai Nexo owners.

A total of 54 units of the Hyundai Nexo that year have the potential to have a leak problem that can trigger a fire.

Quoting from Carscoops, this problem was discovered when a 2019 Hyundai Nexo caught fire at a hydrogen filling station in South Korea.

The fire was caused by a hydrogen leak caused by the charging port filter coming off.

The leaking hydrogen gas met static electricity from the owner and caused a small fire.

Fortunately the fire was brought under control quickly by the gas station’s fire suppression system.

Hyundai has investigated the matter and found that the car does not have a port filter welded to the manufacturer’s standards.

For safety reasons, Hyundai will make repairs in the form of replacing the port filter on the Hyundai Nexo affected by the recall.

Owners can visit the nearest Hyundai dealer for repairs and are free of charge.

So, before making a replacement, NHTSA advises the owner of the problematic Nexo to take preventive steps so that the fire does not spread.

The move is to park the troubled Nexo outside of the garage or away from the building.
