Volkswagen AG's (VOW3.DE) Audi brand has issued a voluntary recall for its first all-electric vehicle, the E-Tron SUV, because of a potential battery fire risk. The electric SUV is only being recalled in the U.S. and affects 1,644 vehicles, Bloomberg reported.

The recall was issued by Audi after it discovered that moisture could seep into the battery cell, which powers the vehicle, from the wiring harness.

The company told the news outlet that no fires have been reported from the battery hazard, but it has received five cases worldwide where the battery fault warning has illuminated because of the moisture issue.

Owners of the E-Tron SUV will be compensated with an $800 cash card to cover fuel and incidentals as well as a loaner vehicle during the repairs of the battery cell, Audi said. The company is also offering free roadside assistance. The recall repair will be available by August, according to the company.

The E-Tron is the first mass-produced electric vehicle from Audi with 540 sold in the U.S., Bloomberg reported. The vehicle has a range of just over 200 miles per charge. The vehicle went on sale in the U.S. in April.

Shares of Volkswagen stock were up 0.03 percent as of 3:43 p.m. ET on Monday.
