A First Recall for the Toyota bZ4X EV

It’s not at all uncommon to see brand-new models subjected to a recall or two in the months following their launch. Call them teething problems. But Toyota is likely feeling a little sheepish about having to recall its first mass-produced all-electric model barely two months after it debuts officially. But here we are.

The recall is to address a potentially dramatic problem: the vehicle’s wheels could come loose. It was issued in response to a notice by the Japanese safety regulator, which stated that sharp turns and sudden braking could potentially cause a hub bolt to come loose, which could potentially lead to the wheel coming off. The regulator adds that it is not aware of any accidents caused by the problem, but it is advising drivers not to use the vehicle until a fix is carried out.

Here at home, Toyota Canada (TCI) contacted Auto123 to point out that there are no bZ4Xs currently available at dealerships in the country. Philippe Crowe, TCI's Corporate Communications Consultant and Team Leader explained that:

"We are aware of the recall affecting the bZ4X in other markets. We have not yet delivered any to our Canadian dealers and will not distribute any in our market until the investigation is complete and a fix is in place."
