I have to stop several car deliveries - in the middle of the Christmas rush

I have to stop several car deliveries – in the middle of the Christmas rush

New taxes on new cars are moving quickly in Norway. From the end of the year, electric cars will only receive VAT on part of the purchase price over NOK 500,000. In addition, there is a weight tax on all cars.

This means that many dealerships are now working at full speed, registering as many cars as possible before the New Year.

One of the brands that has been really busy lately is BMW. In November, they had the best month ever to record in the Norwegian market, and December is well on the way as well.

This is how you can get ahead with the electric car this winter

can not be delivered

But he reveals now Industry website BilNytt.no BMW has had to stop deliveries of some electric car models due to engine failures.

BilNytt.no He writes that many customers have been told that the i4 or iX still cannot be delivered due to “engine defects”. This should apply to about 25 percent of the planned volume.

The cars, however, are registered to the owner now, for later delivery. It is therefore important to be subject to the taxes of the year.

Here is BMW’s new electric SUV

The BMW i4 can also have an engine failure and thus existing cars are affected.

I waited a long time for the car

Marius Tejnebi, Director of Communications at the Norwegian BMW Group, confirmed the halt in deliveries To BilNytt.no:

– Quality control has revealed that due to a manufacturing error, wear and tear can occur on a wheel bearing in the electric motor used in many of our electric vehicles, including the BMW i4 and BMW iX. We, of course, understand that this is not the message that many of our customers would like to receive now, all the while they have already been waiting for their new car for so long. However, BMW’s global guidelines are not to deliver new or used cars with known defects to customers, says Tegneby.

BMW registered 2,205 new cars in November and became the second largest car brand in Norway this month, bested only by Tesla.

Little Christmas holiday

Customers who have already received vehicles that may be affected by the error will be contacted by BMW directly. No accidents are known to occur or motor vehicle use is known to be hazardous.

BMW dealerships now face the challenge of stocking all registered vehicles. Many people are also looking forward to the short Christmas holidays this year. Here it will be important to take advantage of all the days until Friday 30 December.

Good news: You’ll be fine with the cheapest ones
