General Motors made some serious waves around the automotive world with the unveiling of the Chevrolet Bolt concept at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. With the arrival of the Bolt, Chevy was essential pushing its chips in and announcing to the world that it will be a contender in the EV market.
As Forbes shares, “Most electric vehicles currently available on the market…are low-range (around 70 miles) and sell at a price of a few thousand less than what the Chevy Bolt was unveiled for.” This is exactly why the Bolt has given everyone such a…jolt (sorry). The Bolt will boast a range of 200 miles. It will also sell for around $30,000. That’s $50,000 less than a vehicle it’s sure to rival, the Tesla Model S.
Forbes lists the Bolt’s other admirable features:
- Self-driving technology
- Spacious (hatchback)
- 10-inch diagonal screen
And if the arrival of the Chevrolet Bolt concept didn’t prove Chevy’s intentions to compete in the EV market, the imminent arrival of the redesigned 2016 Chevrolet Volt certainly will. Keep an eye out for the brand-new Bolt here at Wiesner Huntsville in the next year or so.
