The Wall Street Journal reports GM announced Monday it is to begin shipments of new battery cells as early as October in order to replace Chevy Bolt faulty battery modules. The GM recall of the Chevy Bolt has overshadowed the company’s battery-powered vehicle programs. GM estimates the recall to cost some $1.8 billion, one of the costliest in history.
The AP reports GM expects to develop “diagnostic battery software that will let car owners charge their cars unattended and to full power” over the next 60 days.
