Chevrolet has quite literally fast-tracked the 2017 Bolt EV into production, fueling the affordable electric vehicle cold war going on behind closed doors.
It seems we’re close to seeing a production 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, as The Verge has learned from General Motors Product Chief, Mark Reuss, the car will make its debut at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in January.
It was assumed the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt would be revealed in production form at the 2016 North American International Auto Show. Instead, Chevrolet will bring the car to one of the world’s largest technology gatherings, a venue that continues to become increasingly important for automakers.
It also explains why GM CEO, Mary Barra, will speak at show, which was announced previously.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is expected to debut with a 200-mile range after one charge, though, it’s been reported prototypes continue to surpass 200 miles.
