Honda is recalling more than 200,000 vehicles

Honda Motor will recall more than 200,000 cars made in China, citing problems with brake pedal sensors that could make stopping difficult.

The Japanese automaker will recall 105,608 hybrids built between October 2018 and September 2020 in its manufacturing venture with Dongfeng Motor Group, China's State Market Regulation Administration said Thursday, Bloomberg reported.

Another 95,081 units from Honda's separate partnership with Guangzhou Automobile Group will also be recalled due to the same problem.

Honda assembled 1.62 million vehicles in China in its latest fiscal year, which ended in March, down 14 percent from a year earlier. Two local partners will test the marked vehicles and replace the components, i.e. the brake pedals, which could lead to failure, according to the statement.

Honda shares fell as much as 1.3 percent in Tokyo on Thursday to their lowest level since March 2021, on a daily basis. The stock is down about six percent this year.

China's regulator said earlier this month that Tesla would perform an over-the-air software update for more than 435,000 electric vehicles produced at its factory in China due to a tail light malfunction.
