GM shows off 2017 all-electric Chevy Bolt
In another electric vehicle entry for the Public Policy Auto Show in Washington, General Motors presented its all-electric Chevrolet Bolt, which has an unprecedented all-electric range of 200 miles. The lithium-ion battery pack fits across the floor of the car to optimize space, said Pamela Fletcher, Chevyês executive chief engineer for electrification.
The Bolt can get a fast charge in 90 minutes. A full recharge, which will be needed only rarely, takes nine hours. The car is a small, five-passenger CUV with a lower center of gravity that can go 0 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds. Cost is about $30,000 after federal incentives. The Bolt offers advanced connectivity, with a 10.6-inch touchscreen. Safety features include a wide angle rear camera. The Bolt goes on sale in late 2016.Download Bulletin PDF
