Chevrolet Set to Announce All-New Electric Bolt with 200 Mile Range
Wishing you could own an all-electric vehicle but your commute longer than the range on a Nissan LEAF, Smart ForTwo or Chevrolet Volt? Enter the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt.
Yes, that’s Bolt. With a B.
Unnamed sources have revealed to The Detroit News and Wall Street Journal that the all-new Bolt is set to officially be unveiled at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit on Monday morning.
When it hits the sales floor, Chevrolet’s new electric car will offer 200 miles of emissions free electric range on a single charge. The move from Chevrolet is not surprising but hits the market in a place where need exists- below the price range of Tesla and above the mileage range of other, cheaper electric vehicles (usually around 85 miles/charge).
Larger than Chevrolet’s other all-exectric offering, the Volt, the vehicle is said to be a hatchback-style crossover that will cost between $30,000 and $50,000.
