Despite no solid release date (yet) for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, things are charging along at supplier LG.
Autoblog reports LG Electronics has begun ramping up production for the 2017 Bolt EV’s 60 kWh battery pack, a deal lasting six years between the supplier and General Motors. The production also gives merit to the rumored October production start for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, but Chevy has not commented on when the vehicle will officially be produced.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will go at least 200 miles on a single charge from its battery and cost $37,500 before federal tax credits and other incentives. Chevy will also be the first automaker to bring a relatively affordable electric vehicle to market; the 2017 Bolt EV will be on sale by the end of 2016.
