Chevrolet is still on schedule to introduce the 2017 Bolt, the brand’s first purely electric vehicle. Along the way, the brand hasn’t been shy about teasing its forthcoming EV, but we have our first look at the production vehicle’s interior, thanks to Autoblog.
Most noticeable is the center stack’s tablet like design with the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, but it seems to remain fairly user friendly with physical buttons and knobs in place. The screen itself is much larger than any current MyLink system in place, and also seems to be running a very different software, quite possibly pre-production, as it looks fairly bare. Curiously, three buttons remain blank, a sign this may be a lower-spec interior with missing features.
Also curious is the shifter’s design, something decidedly iDrive looking. The gear selector shows a dedicated park button, and illuminated arrows pointing towards neutral, and what we assume is the drive gear. A similar looking design seems to have been spotted in the 2017 Cadillac XT5‘s gear selector in a photo we revealed in the past.
The cluster itself is a bit harder to make out, but it looks to be a full-digital design, with a large round portion in the middle displaying what looks to be navigation directions.
The exterior of the vehicle hasn’t lost any camouflage, and continues to look identical to what we’ve seen in the past from the electric hatchback.
