Chevy Is Being A Complete Copycat Of BMW In The World Of EVs

They weren't original with the name, either.

During the last Detroit Auto Show, Chevrolet showed the 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 too similar to the BMW i3. General Motors has made it clear that it is still set to hit 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 production version 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, and it's base MSRP will be right around $37,000. As with all EVs, you also have to think about the fact that you'd be getting government incentives as well.
