BEIJING -- Beijing Hyundai Motor Co will recall 2,591 vehicles from the Chinese market over a defect that may cause the cars to have issues stopping, according to China's top quality watchdog.

The recall, set to begin on Jan 22, will involve all-electric SUV Encino manufactured between March 22, 2019 and Dec 10, 2020, and all-electric sedan La Festa produced between Sept 14, 2019 and Dec 10, 2020, read a statement on the website of the State Administration for Market Regulation.

The faulty integrated electronic brake system of the recalled vehicles may detect an abnormal sensor signal, and as a result, may significantly reduce braking performance.

The automaker promised to update the IEB software free of charge, the statement said.

Beijing Hyundai Motor is a joint venture between the Republic of Korea's largest carmaker Hyundai Motor and China's Beijing Automotive Industry Holding Co Ltd.
