BMW re­calls 323,700 cars in Europe

India Business Journal - - GLOBAL WRAP-UP -

BMW has con­firmed that it will re­call 323,700 cars across Europe due to a faulty com­po­nent that could cause en­gines to catch fire. Just un­der a third - 96,300 - of the af­fected ve­hi­cles are in Ger­many, while 75,000 are in Bri­tain, a BMW spokesman has said. Some 23,500 cars in France and 24,700 in Italy are also hit. The Europe-wide re­call came af­ter the com­pany was forced to take back more than 100,000 cars in South Korea over the prob­lem. BMW also had to apol­o­gise as more than 30 of its ve­hi­cles caught fire this year there.
