The recall, which started on Friday, covers 10,064 Denza models manufactured between Sept. 19, 2014 and Dec. 5, 2017, according to the State Administration for Market Regulation.

The vehicles being recalled are equipped with Takata-produced front airbag inflators, which have a potential risk of rupture when the airbag is deployed, the auto maker said in a statement delivered to the administration.

Shenzhen Denza New Energy Automotive Co., a joint venture between the BYD and German carmaker Daimler, will be responsible for replacing the defective airbags free of charge.
