TOKYO —

Toyota on Wednesday announced a global recall of 1.9 million Prius hybrid cars because of a fault that could cause the vehicle to slow down suddenly, in the latest safety blow to the Japanese auto giant.

The company said it decided on the call-back—the biggest for the eco-friendly vehicle—after the discovery of problems with software used to control a power converter that posed a risk to drivers.

“Because, in the worst case, the car could stop while driving we do consider this a potential safety issue and that’s the reason why we are implementing this recall,” a Tokyo-based company spokesman said.
