Another Chevy Bolt has caught fire in Vermont, marking the eighth incident since last year. Despite receiving the final software update intended to prevent fires, the car caught fire the morning after charging while still plugged in. The ongoing investigation suggests that GM’s software fix has not resolved the issue.

In addition to Chevy Bolt, LG Energy Solutions, the battery manufacturer for Bolt and Hyundai Kona EV, has also faced a challenging year with recalls and class action lawsuits due to fires and other problems.

It’s concerning to see these incidents continue despite efforts to prevent them. As electric vehicles become more popular, it’s crucial for manufacturers to prioritize safety and address any issues promptly. We hope to see a resolution to these problems soon.
