BMW’s Electric Vehicle Recall: Over 14,000 iX, i4, and i7 Models Affected by Faulty Battery Software
BMW has issued a recall notice for over 14,000 electric vehicles due to a software malfunction that could result in a loss of power and an increased risk of a crash. The recall affects certain iX SUVs, i4 and i7 sedans that were produced between October 14th, 2021, and October 28th, 2022. The problem lies with the high-voltage battery electronic control unit and the automaker is urging affected customers to bring in their vehicles for a software update as soon as possible.
BMW detected the issue via its own internal quality control procedure, and no accidents, collisions, or injuries have been reported as a consequence of the recall.
