Chevrolet Bolt EV/Chevrolet Bolt EUV production at the Orion Assembly plant in Michigan will finally resume Nov. 1, after being on pause since August.

According to Automotive News, General Motors intends to resume "limited" Bolt production "for two weeks," which indicates not everything is sorted out yet and the company requires more time to be able to return to standard volume production.

 

"GM said the limited production will start Nov. 1 to help optimize battery production and supply chain repair logistics," Automotive News reported.

 

The production was halted due to the massive battery recall, which involves about 142,000 cars, including about 100,000 in the U.S.

 

LG Energy Solution's plants in Holland and Hazel Park, MI, resumed production of battery cells and battery modules Sept. 20. We assume most of the modules are now produced for the replacement purposes, but some might be used also to produce new cars.

 

The Chevrolet Bolt EV/EUV duo are among the most popular EVs in the U.S. and it would be great if GM and LG would be able to somehow smoothly conduct the recall and maintain production at the same time. On the other hand, each produced new Bolt means someone must wait for a battery replacement for his or her car slightly longer.
