2017 is the year of the Chevy Bolt!



Come 2017 General Motors will launch an all-new product that aims to push electric car technology to the next level.


Called the “Bolt,” Chevy’s new electric car will offer 200 miles of emissions free electric range on a single charge. GM filed a trademark for the Bolt name in August of last year.

Larger than the Volt, the hatchback-styled vehicle is expected to cost between $30,000 and $50,000.


Currently Tesla is leading the charge in offering an electric car with a significant range. The base Model S offers a 208 mile range but starts at $70,000.

General Motors is expected to show a concept of the Bolt at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday, in addition to revealing the second-generation Volt.

Just hope GM builds this car and it is available nationwide by 2017!

According to different GM reports, the Bolt EV (its official name) will be in production by "late 2016", and sold by the end of 2016 and early 2017. This reminded me of when the Chevy Volt was produced in October 2010, and the first sale was in December 2010.

We have to watch the famouts auto magazine spies, who can capture the first photos of the preproduction Bolt EV during their many test runs. That will start next year.

I am curious how much will change from the concept to the production vehicle. Do you expect the body shape to stay basically the same, or are we going to see some slight changes. For example, I am wondering if the C-pillar and the part of the back window that curves around the side of the car are going to stay.

The styling has been well received, so I hope GM is devoting their efforts to improving the drivetrain and lowering cost, rather than tweaking the styling any more.

Original concept looks like something that belongs on Chevy's alpha platform!
