BMW to roll back 120,246 vehicles in China

Luxury car maker BMW will recall a total of 120,246 vehicles in China to fix their battery issues, the world’s most populous country’s quality control agency revealed.

The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection & Quarantine announced on Tuesday that that car maker will roll back the models of the BMW 5 Series, the BMW 6 Series Coupe and the BMW 6 Series Convertible, manufactured between 2003 and 2010.

The roll back will start from 10th of May this year.

The quality control agency said the installation fault of the batteries in the affected vehicles may pose safety risks. In a worst case, the vehicle could catch fire.

However, the German auto giant has claimed that no accidents or injuries have been reported so far.

The incorrectly installed battery cable cover in the vehicle’s trunk has also forced BMW to roll back 367,000 5-series and 6-series cars in the United States.

In total, the luxury car maker is recalling around 1.3 million vehicles across the globe.
