GM recalling Chevrolet Bolt EVs due to fire risks amid federal probe

Source: CNBC

General Motors is recalling tens of thousands of all-electric Chevrolet Bolt EVs due to risk of fire.

The Detroit automaker said Friday it is recalling 68,667 of the cars globally from the 2017 through 2019 model years, including nearly 51,000 in the U.S. The recall includes vehicles GM's majority-owned subsidiary Cruise is using to test its autonomous vehicle technologies.

GM has confirmed five instances of fires that "could be related to the high voltage batteries" in the vehicles, according to Jesse Ortega, executive chief engineer for the Chevrolet Bolt EV.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in October opened an investigation into three reported fires involving Chevrolet Bolt EVs. The automaker is cooperating with the federal vehicle safety agency, Ortega said.
