Toyota Motor Corp said on Wednesday it would recall about 6,25,000 hybrid cars globally to fix a software glitch that could, in limited cases, shut down the hybrid system while the car is being driven.

Models affected are certain Prius v minivans, called Prius alpha and Prius+ in some markets, among other models, produced between May 2010 and November 2014, the automaker said.

About 3,40,000 vehicles of the total are in Japan, 1,60,000 in Europe, and 1,20,000 in North America, it said, adding there had been no reports of crashes or injuries.
