General Motors, which has its global headquarters in Detroit, announced on Wednesday that it will recall 140,000 Chevy Bolt Electric Vehicles from all around the United States and Canada. According to reports, the recall tackles a potential risk of a fire starting in the carpet inside the electric vehicle after an accident.

The recall affects models with model years between 2017 and 2023, affecting 120,000 Chevy Bolt EVs in the US and 20,000 in Canada. Although “few cases” of the Bolt’s floor carpets catching fire have been reported, GM has not disclosed the exact number of accidents.

The Chevrolet Bolt debuted in 2016 as General Motors’ sole electric vehicle product. The Bolt EUV, as well as the GMC Hummer EV and Cadillac Lyriq, have improved the EV selection. As one of the cheapest EVs in the US and Canadian markets, Bolt’s sales are still increasing. Prior to this, a recall for the Chevrolet Bolt EV and EUV owing to battery fires reduced the company’s 2021 delivery figures. In April of this year, the Bolt’s production resumed once the battery fire problems were resolved. With the Bolt EV’s price dropped by $6,000 for the 2023 model year, General Motors was prepared to launch a successful EV product.
