Nissan is recalling a small number of 2014 Nissan Leaf electric cars to replace the car’s inverter assembly.
Just 196 cars are affected, all build during a ten-day period in April. Nissan puts the recall down to an out-of-specification control circuit board being fitted during this time.

This circuit board component could result in the electric motor stopping without warning–though no cases have been reported to Nissan.
Nissan started contacting owners of affected vehicles in late May, so they can bring their vehicles to a certified Nissan Leaf dealer for repair. The inverter assembly will be replaced with no charge for parts or labor.
