Chevy Bolt Is Back On The Road With A New and Improved Battery Pack

by | Sep 30, 2022 | Clean Energy | 0 comments

After a massive battery recall that halted production since August 2021, GM is once more rolling Chevrolet Bolts off the line.

The battery recall was prompted by manufacturing defects uncovered in the pouch-type lithium-ion battery cells that GM sourced from LG Chem’s LG Energy Solution. The defects created a potential for battery fires in about 142,000 cars.

New 2022 Bolts are in production now that the batteries have been changed and some supply chain issues have been resolved. According to a press call by Steve Majoros, Chevy’s VP of marketing, those whose older models were affected by the recall will receive a new battery pack with 20 more miles of range, plus an eight-year, 100,000 mile warranty.

With the reintroduction of the Bolt, GM now offers four passenger electric vehicles: the Chevrolet Bolt EV, Chevrolet Bolt EUV, GMC Hummer EV pickup, and the Cadillac Lyriq.
