Chevy Bolt Delayed Through February
General Motors said it is extending a production halt at its Orion Assembly plant in Michigan, which makes the Chevrolet Bolt EV, through the end of February.
The largest U.S. automaker in August widened its recall of the Bolt to more than 140,000 vehicles to replace battery modules after a series of fires. Earlier this month it extended its production shutdown through late January. GM has also indefinitely halted retail sales of new Bolt vehicles. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has an ongoing investigation into the battery fires. The agency noted in August that all Chevrolet Bolt EVs had been recalled due to the risk of the high-voltage battery pack catching fire.
