Repair of this agency takes about two days. Unfortunately for the American automaker, this is the first car to do a massive recall after a faulty lithium-ion battery cell in the car was identified as the cause of the multiple fires.
Chevrolet was the first software solution to be launched in November 2020, before the defective production was identified as the main driver. For now, the plan is relatively simple, if expensive: Replace every Bolt EV battery with a new one, which costs more than $1.8 billion.
These replacements are now under way, and Chevrolet has contacted owners to let them know what's going on.
The first Bolt electric cars to receive new packages are those built "in specified build periods," while Chevrolet believes the defects have been built up in batches. The replacement process takes "about two days" to complete at the dealership, and new packages include an eight-year or 100,000-mile warranty.
In addition, Chevrolet says it will launch a new diagnostic program in November. For all electric vehicles and bolts. This checks BEV cells for any abnormalities that may indicate defects and helps the company prioritize which vehicles to replace sooner.
