Unplugged, sitting in a parking lot, the burning vehicle also destroyed the two adjoining vehicles including a Maserati.
Early Monday morning, 20-year-old Jesus Damian’s 2017 Bolt EV burst into flames while sitting in a parking lot near his apartment in Sacramento, California. The all-electric vehicle was unplugged and off when the fire broke out.
GM has instructed Bolt owners to park outside, only use 144 miles of the vehicles claimed 259 mile range, and to never charge indoors. Many may be unable to meet those requirements – think of apartments with assigned car park parking and little to no outdoor parking.
Today, GM announced production of the Bolt will continue to be shut down for some time.
