All incidents occurred while the affected vehicles were parked and turned off, with six of them connected to chargers. Stellantis said that it was not aware of any cases of injuries due to the incidents.

While the recall primarily affects the 4xe variants sold in the US market, with 32,125 units affected. An additional 3,856 units in Canada and 9,249 outside North America are also impacted.
