Toyota Motor Corporation, the world’s biggest car maker, will recall 1.9 million Prius hybrids, including 18,000 sold in Thailand, because of a software glitch that could cause the vehicle to stall. 

Vudhigorn Suriyachantananont, a senior vice-president of Toyota Motor Thailand (TMT), said yesterday that the company is sending a letter to owners of the Priuses sold in Thailand.

The recalled Prius model was produced locally from Nov 1, 2010 to Jan 31, 2014.
