With a letter can change a lot. Proof of this is the Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept. Read well "Bolt" no "Volt". While the second is a reality the first is for now a concept advanced by us will be accessible electric GM in a few years.
When I heard that Chevrolet would be presenting two products that phonetically sound alike but are conceptually two different models really caused much grace. However Bolt EV Concept is not a joke but a serious intention to General Motors for a fight in the most affordable electric vehicles strip.
Unlike the Chevrolet Volt the Bolt EV Concept is a complete and pure electric product without any combustion engine as power generator nor carries a saloon body but a minivan. Therefore it is impossible to avoid not refer to this concept as Detroit's answer to BMW i3 or why not the Honda Fit EV.
Chevrolet indicates that autonomy is about 322 km (according to the EPA test cycle). Although for now only remains a concept the idea is to offer a product with similar characteristics around 2016 or 2017 with a target retail price estimated 30000 public dollars.
This mini-MPV has four seats a flat floor and five doors. The interior promises to be quite bright thanks to a generous sunroof and interior made in light colors. Touch screen 10 inches from where they can be commanded multimedia features of the vehicle is also highlighted.
Chevrolet did not release information about the power of the electric drive of Bolt but that means applications can link the vehicle to a smartphone and use it as a key and also carries a system that allows the cell to park from a distance and "call" where the driver needs it.
The press release also talks about a selector with several driving modes that the driver can choose to taste and altering throttle mapping but also the height and hardness of the suspension. In turn the recharge-because it is an electrical "plug-in" - can be done through a domestic outlet using a Type 1 Yazaki connector that supports rapid recharging of batteries which do we know their capacity.
