German auto brand BMW will recall 45 cars in the Chinese market due to problems in engine control modules, according to China's market regulator.
The recall, starting Oct 25, will involve a component of imported i3 electric cars manufactured between Jan 9 and Feb 21, 2019, according to a statement by the State Administration for Market Regulation.
The defect may cause the module to shut off high-voltage power to the drive system and result in a loss of propulsion, posing safety risks, the statement said.
BMW China Automotive Trading Ltd will replace the defective parts of the affected vehicles free of charge.
