Complete electrical failure, caused by corrosion on the high voltage battery pack 28 module cell terminals. Most noticeable if dampness is found in and around the boot load area, possible failure of the tailgate seals. The corrosion can’t be seen unless the battery pack is dissembled.
Later vehicles can suffer from ABS failure – main ABS pump cost £3000.
