Recall sets back EV push by China's Geely to beat Tesla in Europe

Polestar venture by Volvo unit to repair software glitch causing vehicles to stop

HAMBURG, Germany -- The Polestar 2, one of the first Chinese-built electric vehicles to be embraced by European drivers, is now facing a full recall in an embarrassing setback for Geely Automobile Holdings and its Swedish subsidiary Volvo Cars.

A spokesman for Polestar told Nikkei Asia that the company had requested owners of the nearly 2,200 Polestar 2 vehicles on the roads in Europe and China to bring their cars to authorized service centers to address a software glitch that caused several vehicles to stop abruptly. No accidents have been reported in connection with the problem.
