In the US Chevrolet made a
significant statement on its commitment to electrification with the
introduction of the Bolt EV concept – a vision for an affordable, long-range
all-electric vehicle designed to offer more than 200 miles (322 km approx.) of
range starting around $30,000 (Rs 18.61 lakh).
“The Bolt EV concept is a
game-changing electric vehicle designed for attainability, not exclusivity,”
said General Motors CEO Mary Barra. “Chevrolet believes electrification is a
pillar of future transportation and needs to be affordable for a wider segment
of customers,” she added.
Leveraging the electrification
prowess established by Volt and Spark EV, the Bolt EV concept is designed to
offer long-range performance in all 50 states and many global markets.
Drivers will be able to select operating modes designed around preferred driving styles such as daily commuting and spirited weekend cruising, for uncompromising electric driving. The modes adjust accelerator pedal mapping, vehicle ride height and suspension tuning. The Bolt EV concept is also designed to support DC fast charging, said a press release issued by the company.
“We have made tremendous strides in technologies that make it easier and more affordable for Chevrolet customers to integrate an all-electric vehicle in their daily lives,” said Barra, adding that “The Bolt EV concept demonstrates General Motors’ commitment to electrification and the capabilities of our advanced EV technology.”
