It’s a big time of the year. No, we’re not talking about the holidays or election season. We’re talking about General Motors launching the first affordable electric vehicle with over 200 miles of range. And, if you’re a Costco consumer, you’ll be happy to know the warehouse club has leaked a configurator for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
If you weren’t aware, yes, you can purchase cars through Costco, sometimes with some great discounts, too. In fact, Costco and Chevrolet teamed up for a special Chevrolet Silverado months back. With the Costco configurator, spotted by eagles eyes at Jalopnik, we haven’t learned many new things, but we do get a look into some official specs.
For example, the 2017 Bolt EV will have a trunk volume of 16.9 cubic feet, and we’re also reassured on the 238 miles of electric range, rated at 119 MPGe. Also, as we knew, the 2017 Bolt EV will start at $37,495 and creeps its way up to $41,780 in Premier trimmings. That’s before any federal tax credits are applied, however.
GM has officially started production of the 2017 Bolt EV at the Orion assembly plant and it will reach its first customers by the end of 2016.
