Japanese car manufacturer Toyota is withdrawing 2,700 mass-produced all-electric cars due to concerns over wheels that may fall off.
In an interview with the BBC, a company spokesperson said that the bolts on the bZ4X’s wheels “can loosen to the point where the wheel can detach from the vehicle” following a “low-mileage use.”
The recall is executed only two months after its release in Japan. Subaru also states the same grounds behind its recall of 403 electric vehicles it built with Toyota.
Toyota has issued a safety recall for 2,700 bZ4X SUVs in the US, Europe, Canada, and Japan.
“If a wheel detaches from the vehicle while driving, it could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing risk of a crash,” said a spokesperson. “No one should drive these vehicles until the remedy is performed.”
