All BMW i3 EVs ever sold in US are recalled over crash test results
BMW is issuing a voluntary recall for all i3 EVs sold in the U.S., both all-electric and range-extended, after results from a NHTSA crash test, Inside EVs reports. The German automaker is also issuing a stop-sale until it can come up with a fix. According to documents provided to BMW dealers, the recall affects i3s sold in the U.S. from model years 2014 through 2018 (that's all of them), a total of about 30,542 units. The test it failed is a front rigid barrier crash, specifically with a 5-foot-tall, 110-pound female in the driver's seat who is not wearing a seat belt. Such a situation produces a "marginally" higher risk of neck injury according to NHTSA tests.
