The BMW Group has issued a recall for 3,501 vehicles across its BMW and MINI brands.
The recall covers the following plug-in hybrids and electric cars:
  • 2018 BMW 330e
  • 2018-2019 BMW 530e
  • 2018-2019 BMW 740Le
  • 2018 BMW i3, i3s
  • 2019 BMW i8, i8 Roadster
  • 2018 BMW X5 xDrive40e
  • 2018 MINI Countryman SE ALL4 PHEV

The recall concerns the BMW TurboCord portable chargers, where BMW was notified by its supplier Webasto, of a potential issue in August of this year.

BMW is issuing the voluntary recall after having received a batch of potentially faulty cables that may have been included with, or sold with, the aforementioned list of vehicles.
The faulty cables contain incompatible capacitors that, upon failure, may pose a shock hazard, or even a thermal event that can result in a fire.

The recall affects only BMW TurboCord chargers (BMW Part# 61-44-2-448-670) and does not affect permanently installed home chargers, Level 2 chargers, or charging cords from third parties.

Owners of potentially affected vehicles are due to be notified by first-class mail beginning on November 12.
Owners that have purchased the TurboCord charger as an option will be asked to return it to their authorized BMW dealer, who will replace it at no charge and owners who have already paid for a replacement are eligible to seek reimbursement through the BMW Owner Reimbursement Program.
