10,825 charging cables for the Chevrolet Bolt EUV are being recalled because they may cause electric shock

General Motors has announced a recall of 10,825 Chevrolet Bolt EUV vehicles produced in 2022-2023, with 9,423 of them located in the United States. The reason for the recall is a potential risk of electric shock associated with the charging cable provided by Webasto Charging Systems. According to the company, the issue is related to a flaw in the cable and the controlling software.

GM states that the software may fail to stop charging when the user disconnects the cable from the vehicle, which could result in a loss of grounding, potentially leading to electric shock for those handling it. However, GM notes that any electric shock would be very brief, lasting approximately 1/40th of a second.

The company emphasizes that, to date, no injuries have been reported due to this specific issue. GM will inspect the cables on the recalled vehicles and replace them if necessary to address the problem.
