A recall of Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles is being expanded by General Motors.

GM has  recalled all Bolt and Bolt EUV models from the 2019 to the 2022 model year.

The problem is a battery defect that could lead to a fire.

GM says it has confirmed ten Bolt fires, but say no one has been seriously injured.

Engineers from GM and their battery partner LG Energy Solution have still not come up with a fix for the defective batteries.
