General Motors is recalling an estimated 111,242 2017-2023 Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles (EVs) for a fire risk.

After a crash with seat belt pretensioner deployment, the pretensioner exhaust may ignite carpet fibers near the B-pillar, causing a fire.

To fix the problem, dealers will install metal foil at the carpet near the pretensioner exhaust, and install a pretensioner cover as necessary, at no cost to owners.

Owner notification letters will be mailed January 30. Owners can reach Chevrolet's customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's reference number for the recall is N222383790.
