As one of the most important players on the electric vehicle market, already selling the Chevrolet Volt very well, General Motors tries to improve its presence with the introduction of the Chevrolet Bolt EV. 

The car can travel more than 200 miles on a single electric charge, offering consumers the first long-range, affordable EV. This required an new supplier relationship combining expertise in infotainment, battery systems and component development.

Following joint planning and research, GM and LG brought the Chevrolet Bolt EV to reality. The Bolt EV concept was shown at the North American International Auto Show in January this year. Chevrolet already confirmed in February that the Bolt EV would go into production at GM’s Orion Township assembly plant in late 2016.

Engineers considered different vehicle architectures, electric driving ranges and performance options for the Bolt EV before deciding the vehicle must deliver 200-plus miles of all-electric driving.

LG supplied an array of new components and systems for the Chevrolet Bolt EV, including: Electric Drive Motor (built from GM design), Power Invertor Module (converts DC power to AC for the drive unit), On Board charger, Electric Climate Control system compressor, battery cells and pack, High Power Distribution Module (manages the flow of high voltage to various components), battery heater, Accessory Power Module (maintains low-voltage power delivery to accessories), Power Line Communication Module (manages communication between vehicle and a DC charging station), instrument cluster and infotainment system.
