DETROIT – General Motors ’recall of Chevrolet Bolt EVs continues to push car production aside.

The company has stopped production at the plant in Michigan since Aug. 23, so it can focus on creating the battery modules needed for the cars it calls. The company said Wednesday it is extending Bolt’s downtime at the Orion assembly plant near Detroit for another two weeks until Nov. 1.

Defects in production caused at least 13 bolts – the company’s main electromagnetic EV – to ignite spontaneously, resulting in GM recalling every electric car since production began in 2016.

Production problems occurred at LG Battery Solution’s plants in South Korea and Michigan. The “rare manufacturing defects” in Bolt EVs are the anode crack and the folding separator, which increase the risk of fire when they are in a single battery chamber.

LG Chem, a car manufacturer’s battery supplier, began shipping battery replacement modules for more than 140,000 Bolt EVs earlier this month.

On Tuesday, GM automaker and LG battery supplier announced that they had reached an agreement to recoup the cost of reclaiming the automaker. As a result of the deal, GM will recognize an estimated recovery that will cover the costs associated with the $ 1.9 billion recall in the third quarter.

Separately, GM will take an additional three-week shutdown to the Chevrolet Equinox production at the Ramos Assembly in Mexico on Wednesday until November 15 due to a global shortage of semiconductors.

Production of the Chevrolet Equinox in Mexico has declined since August 16, and assembly of the factory-produced Chevrolet Blazer will resume next week.
