Honda Motor Co. said today it would recall 45,335 Civic hybrid cars globally to fix a faulty voltage converter that could cause a short circuit and stop the engine.

No accidents have been reported from the defect, a spokesman said.

The total includes 31,123 units to be recalled in the United States and 7,219 in Japan.
