The vehicle's dynamotor, which converts an alternating electrical current into a direct current, has a problem that could prevent the cars from running normally.

This is the 12th time this year that cars made in China have been recalled because of a problem. This case is the second-largest recall by volume.

From today, China's third-largest joint venture automaker, a link up between Dongfeng Motor Group Co and French PSA Peugeot Citroen, will start recalling 19,306 vehicles.

The firm informed the State General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine last week that it would check Elysee and Fukang vehicles made between December 2005 and March this year.
