BMW of North America is recalling 713 model year 2021 330e and X5 xDrive45e, model year 2020-2021 X3 xDrive30e, and model year 2020 MINI Countryman SE ALL4 vehicles.

Loose welding beads may form a conductive path between the hybrid battery cells which could lead to a short-circuit.

This could increase the risk of a fire.

What to do

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and -- if necessary -- replace the battery modules free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin October 12, 2020.

Owners may contact BMW customer service at (800) 525-7417.
