WASHINGTON (Reuters) – General Motors Co (NYSE:) said on Thursday it will extend a shutdown of a Michigan assembly plant to mid-October in the aftermath of a new recall of its Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles over battery issues after 10 reported fires.

American’s largest automaker stated that the Orion Assembly Plant will remain closed until at least October 15. GM said that it is cutting production at six additional North American assembly plants due to the continuing shortage of semiconductor chips.
