The Norwegian manufacturer Th!nk will recall in service 850 units of the electric model City sold throughout Europe.
The problem that the Scandinavian manufacturer is facing concerns the vehicle’s brakes. According to company officials, the brakes can lose their effectiveness under conditions of excessive moisture.
“Major, prolonged exposure to water could cause a small malfunction in the electronics. The brakes would still work, but required increased pressure to use”, a spokesman for Th!nk said. The solution found by the Norwegians to remedy the problem lies in wrapping the circuit’s pump in epoxy.
