All BMW i3 EVs are Recalled

All BMW i3 EVs ever sold in U.S. are recalled over crash test results.

Here’s what will happen. The data will be reviewed and it will be decided at the car passed after all.

"The test it failed is a front rigid barrier crash, specifically with a 5-foot-tall, 110-pound female in the driver's seat who is not wearing a seat belt."

But, doesn't everyone wear a seat belt?
