Toyota is recalling 1.9 million hybrid Prius cars globally for a software glitch that could cause the vehicle to stall.
    
Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday that 997,000 Prius cars in Japan, some 713,000 in North America, another 130,000 in Europe and the rest in other regions are being recalled for a problem in the software to control the hybrid system.
    
No accidents or injuries have been reported related to the problem.
    
Toyota Canada says 13,791 Prius cars are being recalled in the country.
    
The software could cause transistors to become damaged, causing warnings lights to go off, driving power to be reduced or the car to stop. The recalled Prius vehicles were manufactured between March 2009 and February 2014.
    
In addition, Toyota Canada is also recalling another 25,577 vehicles _ RAV4s from model year 2012, Tacomas from 2012-2013 and Lexus RX350s from 2012-2013.
