The German manufacturer is recalling more than 12,000 copies of the Porsche Taycan, for a malfunction of the touch screen of the infotainment system.
Modern vehicles, and especially 100% electric models, incorporate many technologies, and all of this is not infallible. Indeed, the Stuttgart manufacturer must carry out the recall of more than 12,000 Porsche Taycansproduced between 2019 and 2022, for a touch screen malfunction of the infotainment system.
The recall affects models for the North American market, but it cannot be ruled out that such an issue also affects models produced for the European market, which are equipped with the same infotainment system.
Porsche Taycan: 12,490 units affected
In total, no less than 12,490 copies of the Porsche Taycan are affected by this recall: these models have been produced between October 21, 2019 and April 25, 2022.
Because of a software failure, the central touch screen and its touch control panel remain black, and do not light up when the vehicle ignition is switched on. The image from the reversing camera is therefore no longer displayed, as is the 360° view which may sometimes be displayed intermittently.

Porsche Taycan: non-compliance under US law
According to American safety standards, these vehicles therefore no longer comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, and more specifically Article 111 which concerns rear visibility.
Indeed, a defective central display or touch control panel can prevent the driver from using the camera-assisted driving functions, which can lead to an increased risk of an accident.
