In the UK, about 55,519 cars are included in the recall, according to a UK Toyota spokesman.

Toyota has announced that it will recall 55,519 hybrid cars in the United Kingdom as part of a 2.4 million-car global recall.

The recall, which covers vehicles sold in Japan, North America and Europe, affects 55,519 Prius, Prius+ and Auris models in the United Kingdom built between October 2008 and November 2014.

The carmaker is recalling 2.43 million of its hybrid vehicles worldwide, including 1.25 million in Japan, 807,000 in the United States, 290,000 in Europe and 3,000 in China.

In a statement, Toyota said the cars involved in the recall had already been involved in previous recalls in 2014 and 2015, but 'the remedy conducted then did not anticipate the new condition identified in this recall'. It involves the vehicle failing to "enter a fail-safe driving mode in response to certain hybrid system faults".

The problem identified arises when the cars fail to enter 'failsafe driving mode as intended'. In isolated cases, the automaker said that the vehicles stalled, although their power steering and brake systems still functioned.

Toyota is recalling 975,000 cars in the United States for stalling and airbag problems, the company said on Friday.

More than 55,000 hybrid cars have been recalled by Toyota in the United Kingdom due to possible stalling problems.

Affected drivers will be sent a letter asking them to book in their vehicle for a software upgrade at their nearest Toyota retailer.

Borneo Motors, Toyota's distributor in Singapore, said on Friday it is now in contact with the affected customers and commercial partners to initiate the rectification procedures.

It's one of the largest recalls for Toyota unrelated to Takata Corp airbags or 2009's unintended acceleration crisis.
