- General Motors said Tuesday it is recalling 140,000 Chevrolet Bolt EVs in North America because the carpet could catch fire after a crash where a front seat belt pretensioner deploys.
- The U.S. automaker said the recall covers various 2017 through 2023 model-year Chevrolet Bolt EV vehicles.
Because the carpet might catch fire following a collision where the front seat belt pretensioner activates, General Motors announced Tuesday that it is recalling 140,000 Chevrolet Bolt EVs in North America.
The U.S. carmaker stated that the recall affects a number of Chevrolet Bolt EV models from model years 2017 through 2023 due to the possibility of fires starting in the unlikely event that front seatbelt pre-tensioner exhaust gases come into contact with floor carpet fibers during a collision.
The recall affects around 120,000 American and 20,000 Canadian automobiles.
