The Chevrolet Bolt EV ad Bolt EUV are now back in production following the battery recalls the company had back in August last year. Production resumed this week as the company can now get hold of a reliable supply of battery packs, that shouldn’t have any issues with fire.
The Chevrolet Bolt was recalled due to having the potential to catch on fire, the issue was affecting all versions of the car from all model years. This ultimately lead to Chevrolet stopping production of the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV last August.
Chevrolet had to recall 68,000 Bolt EVs worldwide, which eventually amounted to 140,000 cars. The old batteries that have come from the affected cars have been pushed towards being fully recycled or reused elsewhere. The battery packs used are the same ones used in the GMC Hummer EV.
