Due to an incorrect material composition of the Mode 2 charging cable for charging at a household power socket, the insulation resistance of the rubber buffer could be impaired, overriding the protective function of the charging cable.
Furthermore, in combination with an error in the household infrastructure, the activation of the protective device in the household electrical circuit might be prevented. This could cause the user to have an electrical shock and could lead to a fire.
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 7 July and 5 November 2021.
