When using the industrial 220V/240V plug at the 100% charge setting, some home power outlets may be incapable of handling the electrical current required to utilize the compact charging system, causing the outlet or charging cable to overheat.

An overheated outlet or charging cable can increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

Owners should not use the 220V/240V compact/portable charging cable and only use the 110V home charging cable or public charging stations.

Dealers will supply a new 220V/240V compact/portable charging cable with an incorporated temperature sensor free of charge.

Interim owner notification letters explaining the safety risk are expected to be mailed February 9, 2024.

A second notice will be sent once remedy parts become available, anticipated mid-2024.

Owners may contact Porsche customer service at (800) 767-7243. Porsche's number for this recall is APB6.
