Toyota recalls 1 million Prius, C-HR hybrids due to fire risk

Toyota lemon vehiclesToyota Motor Corp. has announced a worldwide recall of 1.3 million of its Prius and C-HR compact crossover vehicles due to a risk of fire.

Roughly 554,000 of the vehicles are located in Japan and 192,000 in the U.S. While there are no reported injuries, there was one case involving a vehicle emitting smoke.

Over time, an engine wire harness connected to the power control unit may wear out and potentially lead to a short circuit or even a fire, Toyota reports.

The current-generation Prius, including a plug-in variant, and the hybrid version of the C-HR, are all included in this recall.
