brand-new all-electric several-door hatchback includes a claimed range of more than 0 miles although won’t be coming to the UK
The brand-new Chevrolet Bolt is actually on display at the Detroit motor show, ahead of the start of US sales for the compact several-door hatchback in October.
Previewed by a concept of the same name in early 2015, the Bolt is actually based around a unique front-wheel-drive platform structure as well as uses the same lithium ion battery technology as the second-generation Chevrolet Volt, providing the item using a claimed zero-emission range of “more than 0 miles”.
“The Bolt EV is actually capable of using the latest mobile app technology to enable car sharing, advanced GPS routing as well as gamification, all designed to enhance the ownership experience, right now as well as into the future,” said General Motors boss Mary Barra at the vehicle’s unveiling.
Chevrolet is actually remaining coy on further details until next week’s Detroit motor show, although officials have confirmed Chevrolet is actually developing an advanced navigation system for the vehicle to maximise range as well as provide information on the location of nearby charging stations.
Further features include 4G OnStar LTE connectivity, which turns the Bolt into a wi-fi hotspot.
The Bolt will be produced at parent company General Motors’ Orion manufacturing plant in Michigan alongside the Chevrolet Sonic as well as Buick Verano. The plant is actually currently undergoing a $0 million (£110m) upgrade to handle production of the brand-new hatchback.
The Bolt, which will be priced at around $30,000 (£20,500) from the US after electric car incentives are taken into account, is actually the first dedicated production electric car by General Motors since the pioneering EV1 ceased production in 1999. Chevrolet officials have previously confirmed which the brand-new car won’t be coming to the UK.
