What are the defects?

Due to a manufacturing defect, the high voltage battery may experience a thermal overload if charged over 80 percent capacity. If this occurs, the battery could overheat and lead to a vehicle fire.

What are the hazards?

A vehicle fire could increase the risk of serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users, and bystanders, and/or damage to property.

What should consumers do?

Owners of affected vehicles will be contacted by Audi Australia, asking to schedule an appointment at your nearest authorised Audi dealership to have the battery inspected, free of charge. It is recommended to temporarily limit the charging target to 80 percent capacity, and the owner can change this setting under “Charging Target” menu in the multi-media interface or myAudi app.

Note: While the software upgrade development is underway, it is strongly advised that the owner returns the vehicle for an inspection and potential replacement of the battery every four months.
