Toyota tells American bZ4X electric crossover owners to park their cars immediately [Updated]

Toyota is recalling nearly 3,000 examples of its all-new bZ4X electric crossover to address an issue that could potentially cause wheel separation, Reuters reported Thursday. According to the report, sharp turns or acceleration can cause EV hub bolts to loosen, increasing the risk that a wheel could come off at high speed.
According to the intelligence service, the campaign includes 2,700 vehicles, of which 2,200 went to Europe, only 260 to the United States, 20 to Canada and 110 to Toyota's home market. As of March, Toyota hadn't shipped a single bZ4X to the United States, so the recall shouldn't impact existing US customers.

The bZ4X and its twin, the Subaru Solterra, are both assembled at Toyota's Motomachi plant. Subaru has not yet announced a corresponding recall. Autoblog reached out to Toyota to clarify the nature of the defect and how it might affect US customers awaiting delivery. We'll update this story as we get more information.
