In the coming months, GM plans to push the diagnostic software to other Bolt EV models. It will also come standard with all future GM electric vehicles. In the meantime, if you own a 2019 Bolt EV, your car is eligible for service now. Those with 2017 and 2018 models will have to wait until the end of May to book their appointment. Last year, Hyundai recalled 25,564 Kona EVs in South Korea. Both GM and Hyundai sourced their batteries from LG Chem. At the time, the company told Reuters it wasn’t able to pinpoint the cause of the Kona fires but said it had concluded its cells weren’t to blame.
