Toyota to recall 1M hybrids over wiring issue

About 1.03 million vehicles built between June 2015 and May 2018 will be recalled for safety checks, the Toyota announced on Wednesday. There are approximately 1.03 million vehicles that are affected worldwide with 554,000 of them in Japan and about 192,000 in the US, Jean-Yves Jault, a company spokesman said.

Toyota has issued a recall campaign for the 2016-2018 Prius, addressing an issue that can lead to fires.
