General Motors

General Motors said on Thursday it will increase the shutdown of a Michigan assembly plant to mid-October after a new recall of its Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles concerning battery issues related to 12 reported fires.

The automaker said the extension of the production halt at its Orion Assembly plant will be in force at least till October 15.

the automaker said it was cutting production at six other North American assembly plants due to the ongoing semiconductor chips shortage.

GM said it will not restart Bolt production or sales until it is satisfied that the recall remedy will address the issue of fire risk.

GM said Thursday it is aware of reports of 12 fires and three injuries.
