risk of fire on the iX and i4

The BMW iX and i4 are the subject of a recall in the United States, concerning a risk of fire. Less than 100 copies are concerned.

Contrary to rumors and what is circulating everywhere, electric cars do not really have more risk than thermal models of catching fire. If zero-emission vehicles had indeed been equipped with defective batteries a few years ago, these cars are now very safe and do not risk flaming at every corner. However, it is true that plugged-in cars are more difficult to turn off when this happens. This is notably why firefighters are now subject to specific training to intervene on these vehicles, while there are more and more of them on the roads. Anyway, zero risk does not exist. However, when this is known, it is better to do everything to prevent the tragedy from happening.

A small recall

This is particularly why BMW preferred to organize a recall campaign for its iX and i4. These two electric models are indeed subject to a risk of fire, due to a faulty component which could then deteriorate the battery according to the NHTSA. As a reminder, this is the federal agency in charge of road safety in the United States. In total, therefore, 82 copies of the two vehicles must go to the garage, so that the problem is corrected. If the problem was already known on the iX, the brand has also just discovered that it also concerns the new i4, the electric version of the current BMW 4 Series. This recall only concerns the United States.

A free operation

You should also know that only the BMX iX and i4 products between November 22, 2021 and July 30, 2022 are affected by this failure. All of the other copies produced around the world do not seem to have been impacted. This will no doubt reassure customers, who will therefore be spared a trip to the garage. However, rest assured, operations related to a recall campaign organized by the manufacturer are always supported by the latter.
