Problems with flammable electric car LG Bolt continue: production will stop until December 6

Published

on

Due to a manufacturing defect, at least a dozen Bolt vehicles caught fire, resulting in the destruction of vehicles and property damage. Production was halted from August to late October when General Motors reopened the Bolt car plant.

However, last week General Motors confirmed that production of the Bolt will stop again at its assembly plant in Michigan as early as November 15 for a full three weeks. The production line is scheduled to start on December 6th.

General Motors worked to optimize battery manufacturing and supply chain logistics. One challenge is providing vehicles to be used by Bolt owners when replacing batteries in their vehicles. General Motors still intends to complete the recall of pre-existing vehicles before starting production of new electric vehicles.

Replacing the battery module is a priority for General Motors. Unsold Bolt vehicles remain at dealerships, and GM has made it clear that the company must certify all of these vehicles before they can be sold. It is currently unclear when vehicles in warehouses will be available for purchase again.

LG Electronics manufactures rechargeable batteries for the Bolt and bears most of the recall costs. LG will reimburse GM $ 2 billion in estimated costs of recalling and replacing batteries. Despite a major challenge, GM and LG continue to work together.

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years. SUV production volumes are catastrophically low

The lineup for the electric Hummer EV has already stretched for more than 17 years at current production rates.

Order a new Hummer EV and wait 17 years.  SUV production volumes are catastrophically low

General Motors is facing the same problem that Tesla long ago faced, and now Ford and Rivian are facing. The company offered the market a car that interested consumers a lot, they began to pre-order, but GM simply cannot produce enough cars. In this case, of course, due to the continuing shortage of components.

So far, about 77,500 people have pre-ordered the Hummer EV. This is quite a lot, but much less than the Tesla Model 3 at one time. However, Tesla had no problems with components and was actively increasing production. But General Motors now produces only 12 cars a day!

This is catastrophically small. Even Rivian has already reached the volume of about 30-40 cars a day, and Ford produces about 150 F-150 Lightings pickups.

The manufacturer says that it intends to significantly increase production volumes at the end of this year, but there is no exact data on this. And even with 12 cars a day, even a five-fold increase in production will be completely insufficient.

Geely wiped Teslas nose The Chinese introduced the Geometry E

Elon Musk has long announced a cheap Tesla electric car, but it’s still not there, and all the other manufacturer’s electric cars, on the contrary, are getting more expensive. In great contrast to this, the official announcement of the Geely Geometry E electric crossover looks like, which, at a price of $ 15,000 (or even a little less), provides a range of 400 km.

Unlike cheap Tesla, which is only in the plans, Geometry E can already be ordered in China. The base version, called the Cute Tiger, with a 33.5 kWh traction battery that provides a range of 320 km, is priced at $12,950. The Linglong Tiger and Thunder Tiger variants with a 39.4 kWh traction battery and a range of 401 km are priced at $14,600 and $15,500, respectively.

The car supports fast charging technology – from 0 to 80% in just half an hour. The crossover is driven by a single electric motor TZ160XS601 with a capacity of 81.5 hp. – not very much, but enough to reach a maximum speed of 121 km / h.

Geometry E dimensions – 4004 x 1765 x 1550 mm. For such a compact car, the size of the wheelbase is decent – 2485 mm.

What’s interesting inside Geely Geometry E? For example, a steering wheel with an antibacterial coating, climate control with a CN95 cabin filter (it traps 95% of particles smaller than 0.3 microns), two 10.25-inch screens and driving assistance systems within the L2 level.

Analysts predicted that the second quarter of this year would interrupt a two-year history of constant growth in the production and shipments of Tesla electric vehicles, and everything happened. In the second quarter of this year, Elon Musk’s company produced 258,580 cars and delivered 254,695 to the market.

Even Tesla has not escaped problems with the production of cars.  For two years, Elon Musk's company set records until the second quarter of 2022 came.

Compared to the same quarter last year, there is an increase in deliveries by more than 50,000 vehicles, but the figures for the second quarter are worse than those for the first: in the first three months of this year, the company produced 305,407 cars, and shipped 310,048 cars to customers.

Even Tesla has not escaped problems with the production of cars.  For two years, Elon Musk's company set records until the second quarter of 2022 came.

Perhaps the company could have performed as well in the second quarter as the first, if not for the suspension of production at the plant in Shanghai. “Current problems in the supply chain and plant shutdowns beyond our control,” the company pointed out in a comment accompanying the supply and sales report. Interestingly, June 2022, according to official data, turned out to be the month of the highest production of Tesla cars in history. Perhaps this is a consequence of Elon Musk’s demand for company employees to roll up their sleeves and return to the offices for fruitful work.
