ELECTRIC VEHICLE SAFETY

WARNING

Never disassemble, remove, or replace high voltage components, cables, or connectors. Tampering with the high voltage system can cause severe burns or electric shock, which may potentially result in serious injury or death.

WARNING

Do not touch the high voltage orange cables or components, especially if damage has occurred. Doing so may result in electrocution which can cause burns, serious injury or death.

A damaged high voltage battery may be a fire risk. Make sure that the vehicle is placed under surveillance in a dedicated storage area if the high voltage battery is damaged. Failure to do so may result in a fire, which can cause burns, serious injury or death.

The high voltage cables and connectors are colored orange for identification purposes and cannot be serviced. If maintenance or repair is required, always consult a retailer/authorized repairer. Failure to do so, may affect the vehicle’s warranty.

The electric vehicle system is insulated and protected with covers and shields. The result is that:

  • The high voltage system is insulated from the vehicle.

  • The high voltage system is protected from the environment.

  • Access is prevented to unqualified personnel.

The vehicle monitors the integrity of the electric vehicle system. If a fault is detected, the instrument panel displays a relevant warning message and may also illuminate a warning lamp. See ELECTRIC VEHICLE WARNING MESSAGES.
