    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.

    • This is good stuff, I am glad Ford is expanding and helping the push to eV, the faster we go all EV and EV costs come down the better.  Also it is good they are investing the education side, because this country as a whole needs more people in Manufacturing, auto repair, auto body repair and trades in general.  We kind of got away from making things here and a lot of the people doing trade jobs are older, once they retire we are screwed if there aren't young people doing it too. 2 million EV's by 2026, Tesla is already there.  GM and Ford will probably have a good battle for #2 EV maker, what I don't see from Ford is the volume vehicles outside of F150, which the Lightning as it now is far outsold by the ICE version.  Mach-E isn't a volume product, Ford needs the $30k Escape EV that can sell huge numbers.  Lincoln is a dead brand, you aren't getting volume there.  Ford could do well with pickups and vans for the commercial market.
    • @surreal1272 Common Man, your popping his conspiracy bubble of false narrative about pricing on items that are not Tesla or Mercedes AMG Fan boy crazy prices cause an American Company has built auto's that are collectors items. 🤣 Here is just a portion of what I found in my neck of the woods and I see no price reduction like SMK is saying.
    • Good lord. Did you miss the limited production part of the Demon or do you somehow think there will be millions of them 20 years from now? It should be noted that the other cars you mentioned are all less than 20 years old too so maybe (skipping the fact that I routinely see CTS-V Wagons going for right at their original sticker with low miles), pick a spot and sitka with it because you can't have it both ways. A low mile limited production Demon will fetch above original price 20 years from now. They start at $69K and the Redeye starts at $76K so...go ahead and explain this...   And this...
    • Ouch another FORD Recall. They forgot to put in the proper circuit to allow Trailer Towing. Recall Alert: The 2023 Ford Maverick Can’t Tow (msn.com)
    • Used Hellcats right now are $50-85k for the most part, nothing is going to make those go up in value.  So I don’t see the last call demon selling for like $200k 20 years from now when there will be a ton of cheap hellcats and prior demons out there All the prior CTS-V’s, Camaros, Shelby Mustangs all depreciated.
