    Chevrolet Bolt EV Battery Production Resumes

      GM today has announced that the Chevrolet Bolt Battery production will resume following a comprehensive action plan.

    GM's comprehensive action plan was outlined today to ensure customers can safely and confidently drive, charge and park their Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt EUV. Including both hardware and software remedies this action plan will be put into immediate effect.

    The bullet list of the action plan:

    • LG battery cell and module production resumes with updated manufacturing processes
    • Battery Module replacements to begin in October
    • GM to introduce new advanced diagnostics software.

    LG plants in Holland and Hazel Park, Michigan have resumed production with added capacity to provide more cells to GM. The new battery modules will begin shipping to dealers in mid-October focusing on taking care of the existing customers first, then dealers and finally getting production back up and running.

    To quote GM press release on the root cause:

    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.

    LG has implemented new manufacturing processes and has worked with GM to review and enhance its quality assurance programs to provide confidence in its batteries moving forward. LG will institute these new processes in other facilities that will provide cells to GM in the future.

    GM upon replacing the battery packs, these battery packs will have an 8 year/100,000 mile warranty or 8 year/160,000 KM limited warranty.

    GM will within approximately 60 days will launch a new advanced diagnostic software package that will increase the available battery charging parameters over existing guidance. This software will be a dealer installed diagnostic software package.

    • I think both in Ohio and S Florida most of the regular 60s and 50s stuff was gone from the roads in the mid 80s (salt). There were a few 60s cars in my high school—maybe a 1/2 dozen, and only 2 from the 50s I remember—a ‘56 Ford pickup street rod and a late 50s MGA.     The ‘60s cars I remember were the twins that had a pair of restored red ‘65 Mustangs—one coupe, one convertible, a rough brown ‘68 Mustang coupe, a rough blue ‘66 Mustang coupe, an orange ‘68 Road Runner, a dark blue ‘68 Charger, a gray ‘65 Coupe de Ville and a well worn ‘68 Comet 2dr. 
    • Right; 4-drs were shunned among enthusiasts.... but of course a huge quantity of 2-drs had bench seats. I'm fine with buckets/console in vintage stuff, I just also have no problem with a bench there, too. I briefly considered buckets/console in my '59, decided not to bother. 'Our gang' ran mostly older iron in the mid '80s; mid '60's stuff, with a couple of '50s cars.
    • When I was I high school, 4drs with bench seats weren’t aspirational though.  They were thought of as parent and grandpa cars.  Kids wanted sporty 2dr bucket seat hatchbacks—those were the cars we wanted in the mid 80s.     But I had many friends that got hand-me-down sedans from their folks…I remember a pale green ‘77 LeSabre, a sweet red w/ white top ‘76 Electra Limited 2dr, a dark red ‘81 Delta 88, and a sweet triple silver ‘80 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham d’Elegance.  Rode in all of them, often with 6 teenagers...they were comfortable, not cramped.  Also remember a blue '75-78 Marquis 4dr and an early 80s Impala wagon.  I drove my Dad’s ‘85 Town Car to school on occasion before I got my ‘87 Mustang GT.
