The name 2017 Chevrolet Bolt immediately calls for attention as it refers to something, which should be as fast and striking as the lightning bolt. Hence, for a lover of speed, this hatchback is worth an attentive look.
Exterior and Interior Specifications of 2017 Chevrolet Bolt
The unveiling of the vehicle at the Detroit Auto Show, 2015, exposed its box-type look. It has no outcroppings and has the look of a basic car. The windscreen is splendidly wide allowing the driver to have a good view of the road without twitching in his seat. It can be said that the roof is made of glass. The doors open wide enough for easy getting in and alighting.
According to General Motors (GM), the car does not only look lightweight, it is actually so. Made of light materials like carbon fiber, magnesium, and aluminum, the car weighs lesser than other hatchbacks. The austerity in the exterior designing of the car has essentially made it possible for GM to provide the interior with space required for comfortable seating of all 4 occupants. The floor of the vehicle has no protruding giving it a spacious look.
Engine and Mileage of 2017 Chevrolet Bolt
An all-electric car, it offers tremendous mileage. According to GM, a single charge will have the vehicle run for 200 miles. Of course, it is not as much as Tesla’s Model S offers (208 miles) but for someone who loves Chevrolet, this car promises to deliver close to what one needs for successful every day commuting.
Rumor has it instead of a battery pack, the vehicle will have fuel cells developed solely by GM. The fuel cell technology is not new and GM is already trying to get it patented. Having put ample time in research, the company has been able to reduce the size of the fuel cells close to that of a 4-cylinder engine. Surely, the Bolt should have no trouble in accommodating a hydrogen fuel tank and still retain its compact design.
Price and Release Date
GM claims it could build the car within 18 months. Hence, most likely the environment-loving car will reach the showrooms sometime in 2017 with a price label ranging anywhere between $30,000 and $50,000.
GM CEO Mary Barra claims that the vehicle is capable of becoming a good option for regular shuttling. Of course, the small structure assures reduced parking tension while the emission free running of 2017 Chevrolet Bolt promises a greener future.
