Investors in General Motors (NYSE: GM) who have been worried about GM's massive $2 billion recall of Chevrolet Bolts for battery fires can breathe easier: GM said on Tuesday that a corporate sibling of its battery-cell supplier, LG Chem, has agreed to cover nearly all of the bill. GM had already said it is recalling and checking every Bolt ever made, and that it will replace the batteries in any vehicle that is at risk of catching fire. GM said in a statement on Tuesday that LG Electronics, another unit of Korean giant LG Group, has agreed to reimburse the automaker for "costs and expenses associated with the recall of Chevrolet Bolt EVs and EUVs due to manufacturing defects in battery modules supplied by LG," about $1.9 billion.
