After much anticipation, Chevrolet has formally taken the wraps off the 2017 Bolt EV at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. While the looks and highlights of the Bolt are now firmed up, Chevrolet is still sparse on details about their latest electric ride.
Chevy has confirmed that the Bolt will go into production in “late 2016” at General Motors’ Lake Orion Assembly Plant in Michigan. The company is also continuing with the public statement that Bolt will offer more than 200 miles of electric range, however they still seem to be avoiding committing to an exact figure. An exact figure probably will not be released until closer to launch.
Aside from the pretty photos, Chevrolet has also confirmed the following features on the Bolt:
- 10.2″ touchscreen LCD with the latest Chevrolet MyLink
- Rear Camera Mirror (from Cadillac)
- Surround Vision 360-degree camera
- All-new MyChevrolet Mobile App
- EV Navigation Mapping
Additionally, Bolt owners will eventually get to compete with each other by comparing driving styles.
