Chevrolet confirms that it will go ahead with production of its new Bolt electric vehicle, a 200-mile, fast charge-capable, all-battery car that’s to be priced at about $30,000. Bolt is to be built at GM’s Orion assembly facility north of Detroit.

The car was unveiled at the Detroit Auto Show last month. “The message from consumers about the Bolt EV concept was clear and unequivocal: Build it,” GM North America president Alan Batey said in a release.

“We are moving quickly because of its potential to completely shake up the status quo for electric vehicles.”

‘Game-Changing’

“The Bolt EV concept was developed as a game-changing, long-range pure electric for all 50 states,” GM says.

The manufacturer’s Orion and Pontiac metal center facilities are receiving a $200-million investment to support production of the next-generation electric vehicle, GM says: Orion is to get $160 million for tooling and equipment, and Pontiac will receive $40 million for new dies.
