After we saw the Bolt Concept last year at NAIAS 2015, Chevrolet unveiled its production version, for the first time, during these days at CES 2016. Chevrolet`s first electric vehicle will be a long range electric car with an affordable price. At least that`s what Chevrolet says. The Bolt EV benefits directly from the suggestions and ideas of Volt owners
The Bolt EV, which will go into production by the end of 2016, will offer more than 200 miles of range on a full charge. It also the benchmark of advanced connectivity technologies designed to enhance and personalize the driving experience.
First of all, in the future, an accurate driving range projection will be based on the time of day, typography, weather and the owner’s driving habits.
Many of the Bolt EV’s driver-focused technologies are supported by OnStar 4G LTE, which turns the Bolt EV into a Wi-Fi hotspot, giving owners easier access to apps and services via a high-speed wireless connection.
The list of connectivity and infotainment features will include a 10.2 inch MyLink color touch-screen display (customizable, widget-based “flip-board style” operation), Rear Camera Mirror (a rear-facing camera provides a wide-angle view of the environment behind the vehicle), Surround Vision (provides a bird’s-eye view of what’s around the Bolt EV for improved safety during low-speed driving and when parking) and MyChevrolet Mobile App (it shows vehicle charge status, OnStar Map service, remote start, cabin pre-conditioning, owner’s manual information, dealer service scheduling.
The new Chevrolet Bolt EV will be built at GM’s Orion (Mich.) Assembly facility, near Detroit
