    BMW announced Friday that it will recall about 3,500 electrified models to inspect charging cables that may lead to shocks or fires. The recall covers a wide range of plug-in hybrid and fully electric 2018 and 2019 BMW and Mini models.

    In government filings, BMW said that incorrect electrical capacitors in its charging cords may fail and either produce an electrical shock or start a fire. BMW markets the chargers as "TurboCord Portable Chargers." The majority of the chargers were installed in the trunks of BMW's plug-in hybrid and electric vehicles in July and August of 2018.
