[Infostock Daily=Reporter Lee Ji-sun] Hyundai Motor has decided to replace all batteries of its electric vehicle "Kona Electric," which has been plagued by a series of car fires.

According to the industry on the 15th, Hyundai Motor and LG Energy Solutions are planning to replace all battery systems such as Kona Electric's battery cells, battery packs, and battery management systems (BMS).

The vehicles subject to battery replacement are 77,000 Kona Electric vehicles manufactured between September 2017 and March 2020.

The KRW 1 trillion cost of replacing the entire battery will be decided after consultation with Hyundai Motor and LG Energy Solutions considering the announcement of the results of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

However, considering the supply and demand of new batteries and the reality of working hours, it is expected that it will take at least a year to replace all batteries for more than 70,000 vehicles.
