General Motors enhances the safety of its electric Chevrolet car


In early July, US automaker General Motors and the Highway Traffic Safety Administration issued safety guidelines for Chevrolet Bolt electric cars, produced between 2017 and 2019.

The instructions call for parking the car in an open place and avoiding connecting it to electricity for charging at night, to prevent the battery from igniting during charging, a defect that led to the recall of these cars in earlier times, and affected all Bolt electric cars produced between 2017 and 2019.

The Motor Trend website, which specializes in cars, indicated a new hope to solve this problem, thanks to the update of the computer program in the car.

This update will not be the complete nor the last solution to the problem of the car catching fire in the Bolt, nor will it be the ideal solution from the perspective of daily use of the car.

According to Chevrolet, the update will automatically prevent the battery charge from increasing above 80%, which will allow car owners to return their cars to their places and charge their batteries during the night.
