General Motors has issued a recall of all Chevrolet Bolt vehicles due to a risk of fire. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and General Motors are urging owners of Chevrolet Bolt vehicles to park their cars outside and away from homes and other structures due to the risk of fire.
There have been several recent cases of the lithium ion batteries in these vehicles spontaneously combusting. The resulting fire is extremely difficult to extinguish, and firefighters have had to simply let the fires burn out.
Please see local signage for restrictions in your area.
