Renault (IW 1000/278) said on Tuesday it was recalling three quarters of its Twizy electric cars sold in Europe to rectify potential problems with brake fluid leaks.
A Renault spokesman said 6,247 Twizy vehicles, made between January 27 and May 1 of this year, were affected by the recall. Most of the vehicles were sold in France and Germany, as well as in Switzerland.
"This is a preemptive recall," the spokesman said, adding that a single case of a brake fluid leak had been detected, without incident.
