General Motors announced it will start replacing recalled batteries in Chevy Bolt electric vehicles.
The company said replacement batteries will begin shipping to dealerships as soon as mid-October.
The current batteries in Chevy Bolts were recalled due to a fire hazard.
“The root cause of the rare circumstances that could cause a battery fire is two manufacturing defects known as a torn anode and a folded separator, both of which need to be present in the same battery cell,” General Motors said.
The maker of the battery, LG, has implemented a new manufacturing process to fix the defect, General Motors says.
The new batteries will come with an 8-year/100,000-mile limited warranty.
General Motors said it has a “notification process” that will inform people when they need to take their car in to have the battery replaced.
Last month, General Motors expanded its recall to include 2017-2022 Bolt EVs and the new EUV.
