Chevrolet Bolt is caught in production guise before official premiere

There must have been few occasions in which a production car looked more daring than its concept version. This will be the case of the new Chevrolet Bolt, which is slated for its official reveal at the CES (Consumer Electronics Show, you’ve read it right) in January 2016.

The car has been recently photographed while charging by one of our readers. It will probably have a range of 320 km, if it is not higher, and cost around US$ 30,000. The new hatchback will join vehicles such as the Honda Fit EV, Ford Focus Electric, Kia Soul EV, the mainstream Nissan Leaf and the upscale BMW i3, apart from GM’s own Spark EV, a much smaller car than the Bolt. Mitsubishi has given up on selling the i-MiEV in the USA just a few days ago.

The new electric car seems much more interesting than the concept, with a much better design. It also feature the regular backseat we believed that would be used. The roof is conventional, made of steel (possibly) and this is all we can tell by seeing the pictures, originally published at Autoblog Green. Pay them a visit to see more pictures and a view of the back of the car, which is also very nice. We only think it deserved a better stage than an appliance fair to be introduced. Or is GM trying to endorse the opinion that cars will become moving refrigerators?
