Chevy Bolt urgently sent for repair due to the risk of fireNovember 15, 2020
There are several known fires associated with this issue. The manufacturer strongly recommends that owners of vehicles affected by the recall should park as far from their home as possible.
General Motors has recalled 50,932 Chevy Bolts in the home market. All these cars were produced between 2017 and 2019.
The reason why electric car owners need to visit a dealership as soon as possible is hidden in the car’s cell blocks. They can smoke and ignite inside – hence the high probability of a fire in the car itself. Moreover, an emergency can occur even if the electric car is not operated and not charged.
Until the problem is fixed, Chevy Bolt owners are asked not to park near their homes. Five fires have already occurred due to battery problems. Two people were injured. In one of these incidents, not only an electric car caught fire, but also a house.
During the repair, the software will be updated. With its help, it will be possible to limit the car charge to 90%. At this time, specialists will continue to investigate the problem – work in this direction is now being carried out around the clock.
