WASHINGTON, Dec 20 (Reuters) – General Motors Co ( GM.N ) said on Tuesday it was recalling 140,000 Chevrolet Bolt EVs in North America because the carpet could catch fire after a crash in which a front seat belt tensioner deploys.
The U.S. automaker said the recall covers various Chevrolet Bolt EVs from model years 201[ads1]7 to 2023 due to rare cases of exhaust fumes from front seat belt pretensioners coming into contact with carpet fibers after a car crash, which could cause a fire.
About 120,000 US vehicles and 20,000 Canadian vehicles are affected by the recall.
