BMW has issued a recall for 14,086 of its electric vehicles (EVs) due to a problem with the battery-management software for the traction batteries in some i4 and i7 sedans, as well as some iX SUVs, that could result in a car temporarily losing power. The recall affects vehicles built between February 4, 2021 and October 28, 2022. BMW is aware of only 10 warranty cases in the US involving a temporary loss of power, though it believes that only 1 percent of the recalled vehicles would be affected by the problem. The company will be contacting owners in early February to arrange for the fix, which will involve updating the battery electronic control unit (ECU) software through the dealers. This recall comes as a reminder of the importance of battery management system in EVs, as it not only improve the overall performance and safety of the vehicle but also increase the reliability and longevity of the battery itself.
