Sometimes electric cars catch fire and it is not to the liking both of their owners and manufacturers. General Motors has a solution to the problem.
The company previously had a problem with the Bolt model. This was eventually solved by changing all the batteries in all cars. Customers were also given a $6,000 discount. GM now offers the same discount to customers who have purchased a car in the past, but in a very unusual condition.
According to the contract, the owner will waive any claims arising from a malfunction of machine, even if it causes a fire. The contract states that even if the car is set on fire, the owner cannot sue for damages. Funny thing is that GM calls this all a goodwill program.
