BMW to Take Back All its i3 EVs due to Faults in Them

The automobile company that goes by the name of BMW is asking all its dealers to stop selling its i3 EVs with immediate effect. This is because they have some big flaws in them that need fixing. The models that need rewiring include the samples from 2014 to 2018.

These were being sold in the US. A crash test which was conducted by BMW showed that for a particular person possessing a certain gender, height and weight, there was a grave danger of a neck injury. The problem would especially be compounded if that person would not be wearing a seat belt.

A notice was sent by the company to its dealers. The repairs are meanwhile being accomplished at a fast pace. Over 29,383 cars have already been purchased by consumers in the United States and about 1,159 remain in the showrooms of dealers.

The crash test which failed to satisfy the authorities, or BMW for that matter, was conducted by the NHTSA. While BMW’s own testing did not show the flaw, the one conducted by the NHTSA clearly showed that such a fault in the cars did exist without a shadow of doubt.

BMW is closely working in conjunction with NHTSA to counter this weakness in the vehicles.
