BMW Issues Recall on EV Batteries That Can Catch on Fire

EV’s Face Another MAJOR Hurdle After Manufacturer Issues DIRE Warning

( – When manufacturers make new cars and models, they may think they’ve covered every possible issue. Some vehicles roll off the assembly line and into the driveways of consumers working perfectly. Even so, some cars come with unforeseen troubles, leading to manufacturers having to address problems on cars already on the streets. BMW recently encountered a dilemma with their electric vehicles (EVs) catching fire, resulting in the company recalling the affected items.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted in a release the BMW recall is impacting the company’s 2022-2023 model year for iX M60 and iX xDrive50, the 2022 i4 M50, and the i4 eDrive40. The company’s announcement explained the vehicles’ high-voltage batteries may accrue internal damage that could result in the vehicles suffering electrical short circuits and causing the fires.

The report notes the issue has impacted around 83 vehicles. BMW explained damaged cathode plates may allow debris or other objects to enter the battery cells and trigger the problem.

The company is urging anyone who owns an affected model to park the EVs outside and away from any structures while not charging or driving them The release mentioned BMW will send out notification letters beginning on September 19. The NHTSA noted dealers will replace the batteries free of charge. The German manufacturer issued the recall voluntarily, and thankfully before too many people got hurt.
