As a result the power door locks do not operate so you are unable to unlock the rear doors to let your kids out. I guess you could have them climb between the seats but what happens if its a new born strapped down in a car seat? If the fire spreads fast this could be a real problem. Scarey to think about..... BMW better figure this out quick.
A lack of electrical power isn't going to prevent me from getting my or anybody else's kids out the backseat of a car that's on fire.
Also, the battery is in the trunk, pretty far from this fire.
