General Motors has filed a trademark application with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) for the terms Chevrolet Bolt and Bolt.
Both applications were filed on August 5th, 2014 and both specify “Motor land vehicles, namely automobiles” as the goods and services category. The trademark filings follow similar applications by GM for the terms Elevation and Sierra Elevation.
|TRADEMARK||FILING DATE||SERIAL NUMBER|
|CHEVROLET BOLT||AUGUST 5, 2014||86357523|
|BOLT||AUGUST 5, 2014||86357513|
It should be noted that both Bolt and Chevrolet Bolt sound similar to Volt and Chevrolet Volt, the brand’s unique extended-range electric vehicle, making us wonder about the probability of the name being assigned to a production vehicle.
