A major car company has issued a large recall and stop sale, on their electric vehicle, of more then 30,000 vehicles sold in the United States. The recall is due to the possible injury that could happen to 5% of its possible drivers. Inconsistencies of initial compliance testing and further testing showed different results, thus causing the recall until more testing can be done.

Key Takeaways:

  • BMW i3 recalled in U.S.
  • The i3 failed a NHTSA rigid-barrier crash test.
  • BMW said a remedy is forthcoming and owners will be notified in December.

“For the NHTSA test and recall, BMW said a remedy is forthcoming, although the automaker hasn’t said how it will fix the issue.”
