GM to Replace Batteries in Recalled Chevy Bolts

General Motors Co. said it would start next month to fix Chevrolet Bolt electric cars that were recalled for fire risk, although many owners likely will have to wait months to receive the remedy.

GM said Monday that it would start shipping new battery cells to dealerships as early as mid-October to begin replacing potentially faulty battery modules. GM and supplier LG Energy Solution have identified and fixed a manufacturing defect, and LG recently resumed production of cells at a factory in Michigan.
