Return to sender for the Toyota bZ4X.

North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific are concerned.

The problem in question concerns the wheel nuts, which can loosen even after low mileage. The risk is serious: the wheels could simply come off the vehicle, admitted a Toyota spokesperson. For now, the mystery remains as to the cause of this complication. The investigation is ongoing.

The first owners of the bZ4X have been notified via various channels since June 23. In France, it is currently only possible to pre-order the vehicle, which does not necessarily collect the best advertisements for its debut.

Vehicle recalls – whether thermal or electric – are relatively common. But this one seems particularly early, even as the first essays in the specialized press have begun to be published. A very bad timing for Toyota, which still needs to prove itself in the electric.
