US automaker giant General Motors is recalling a further 73,018 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles from Canada and the US over combustion risks. The move will cost the company nearly $1 billion.

“General Motors is voluntarily expanding the recall of Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles to cover the remainder of 2019 and all 2020-2022 vehicles, including the Bolt EUV (Electric SUV) model. In rare cases, the batteries supplied to the company for these vehicles may have two production defects… which increases the risk of fire,” the automaker said in a statement posted on the company’s website on Friday.
