Chevrolet Bolt EV Debuts at CES, Offers 200-Mile Range
CES this year is all about electric and autonomous cars. The biggest names in the automobile industry will be unveiling vehicles of the future. We have already seen Faraday Future’s FFZero1 electric concept and Volkswagen’s BUDD-e electric minivan showing off their stuff at CES. Today it was Chevrolet’s turn to shine with the Chevy Bolt EV.
The Chevy Bolt will be priced just under $30, 000 and is said to offer a range of 200 miles on a single charge. Apart from the price and range, not much was spoken about the specs of the Chevy Bolt. However, you can expect GM to release the specs once the car is made public.
Chevrolet had unveiled the Bolt as a concept a year ago at the Detroit Auto Show and was greenlit for production a month later. The production process will begin later this year at GM’s Orion Assembly plant in Michigan.
The company also showcased some other features of the Chevy Bolt including Chevy’s MyLink infotainment system with a 10.2-inch color touchscreen. Rear camera mirror and surround vision (giving the driver a 360-degree view of the surrounding with the help of four cameras) are also included in the Bolt.
Lastly, the company also mentioned that the Chevy Bolt deeply integrates with your smartphone and offers fast charging as well. The car will also support both Android Auto and Apple Car Play. Chevy will perhaps reveal the rest of the details at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit next week.
