GM’s Bolt EV joins a lineup that includes the all-new 2016 Volt, 2016 Malibu Hybrid and Spark EV. “Chevrolet will offer consumers more affordable, electrified vehicle options than any other major automotive brand,” states a release.
“The Bolt EV truly embodies the ingenuity that is at the core of everything we do,” General Motors North America president and head of Global Chevrolet Alan Batey said in the CES release.
‘An Array of Products’
“The technologies and the engineering expertise behind the Bolt EV are tremendous examples of the kind of innovation we intend to offer our customers, across an array of products at a tremendous value,” he said.
“Building on the electrification expertise established by the Volt, the Bolt EV is a game-changing, long-range electric vehicle,” GM says: “Not only will it deliver more than a GM-estimated 200 miles of range, it will break the affordability barrier with a price below $30,000 after full federal tax credits.”
