GM Received First Bolt Fire Complaint in 2019

The Index Today

General motors failed to open a formal investigation when one of the first battery related fires in Chevrolet bolt was reported approximately 18 months ago. A formal investigation was conducted only after August 2020.
General Motors have issued a notice to recall all Chevy Bolts to replace the faulty batteries, making this their third recall till date. In March 2019, the company received its first reports of battery-related fires in the vehicle. The number of fire incidents grew by August 2020 which further led to a formal investigation to be opened by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration NHTSA.
GM has stated that over 50,900 bolts have been recalled so far to check the batteries which were made by LG Chem’s Korea manufacturing plant. The company has decided to install a software to limit battery charge to 90% and will halt all sales until the new software is available on all Bolt vehicles.
General Motor’s has advised all of its Bolt owners to park their vehicles outdoors and not leave their battery charging overnight. Last month, the company made its third recall and has not provided any date on when the vehicles will be updated with the new software.
