Caught! 2017 Chevy Bolt Revealed Ahead of CES 2016

2017_Chevy_Bolt_MAIN

Looking a lot like a new Lexus or updated BMW i3, this surprisingly attractive little silver car is none other than the all-new 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, spied totally undisguised just a few weeks ahead of its “official” debut at the CES show.

GM CEO Mary Barra is still slated to keynote the CES show for 2016, too, so it looks like Chevy will, indeed, have something really big to show off — and, as the online magazine Verge put it, “there’s nothing bigger for GM right now than the (Chevy Bolt), which promises better than 200 miles of electric range.”

Expect the final production Chevy Bolt to be ready for delivery to dealers late in 2017 as a 2018 model, and to be priced at under $40,000. About the same as the competing Tesla Model 3, in other words- but that Tesla will have a run for its money if the new Bolt looks as good in person as it does in pictures!
