Due to a deadly wheel defect Toyota had to recall its Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles

Electric Vehicles, nowadays in small scale, are replacing the usage of conventional vehicles. The reason behind this is the cost of fuel being saved and also, charging an Electric Vehicle is not that much costly. Added to that, it adds to the benefits of the Globe by not damaging the environment as it does not emit any harmful gas. Electric Vehicles are the vehicles of the future. At least at a personal level we can expect that. But if we talk about the success of Electric vehicles, there are so many things to be fixed in Electric vehicles. Recently Toyota, unfortunately, gave an example of a problem in their debuting Electric vehicle, Toyota bZ4X. Approximately, 2700 of the electric EVAs are subject to the recall. 2,000 destined for the European market, 260 to the US, 110 to Japan and 20 to Canada. They asked not to resume driving them until a more “permanent” solution comes. Due to the vehicle’s wheels separating while driving at speed they had to take this step just after two months of release.

Toyota’s Announcement

“No one should drive these vehicles until the remedy is performed,” Toyota said in the Thursday notice. “After low-mileage use, all of the hub bolts on the wheel can loosen to the point where the wheel can detach from the vehicle. If a wheel detaches from the vehicle while driving, it could result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. The cause of the issue and the driving patterns under which this issue could occur are still under investigation.”

Solterra by Subaru

Another company Subaru also recalled 2,600 Solterra EVs which are more or less similar to the EV’s of Toyota, bZ4X in the respect of functionality. According to an article published by Engadget, “There’s no word yet on when Toyota engineers might have a solution for the issue.”
