They weren't original with the name, either.
During the last Detroit Auto Show, Chevrolet showedthe concept version of its new “Bolt”electric vehicle. From the beginning,Chevy has been trying to make this a proper challenger to the new entry-level Tesla. From the beginning, we’ve also thought that the Bolt EV looks way toosimilar to the BMW i3. General Motors has made it clear that it is still set tohit the October 2016 production deadline for this i3 copycat/golfcart. At this point, it is very likely that the Bolt will fully replace the Chevy Spark EV.
Chevrolet has just announced that the productionversion of the Bolt will make its full debut at the Consumer Electronics Show(CES) in January. The Chevy Bolt will have a range longer than 200 miles, andit’s base MSRP will be right around $37,000. As with all EVs, you also have tothink about the fact that you’d be getting government incentives as well.
