High Voltage Safety Information

eAssist vehicles have a standard 12-volt battery and a high voltage battery. Only a trained service technician with the proper knowledge and tools should inspect, test, or replace the high voltage battery. See your dealer if the high voltage battery needs service.

The negative 12-volt battery cable and the high voltage cable in the engine compartment are clearly labeled. In emergency situations, first responders can cut those cables to disable the high voltage battery system.
