Roadshow took a moment to catch up with GM product chief, Mark Reuss, following the Bolt EV’s awards, and he discussed where the affordable EV’s platform may head next and what it means for the future.
“I think the platform that we’ve got here is really the platform of the future for us,” Reuss stated. “This is a great platform for us, it’s really our future.”
Reuss also reaffirmed the introduction of an autonomous fleet of Bolt EVs coming to Detroit, Michigan for fall weather testing this year.
The conversation then turned to a network of charging stations, something the Bolt EV lacks compared to its Tesla rivals. Reuss stated there were no plans and the company is “not working on that right now” because of the Bolt EV’s range. Instead, the focus will be to continue improving battery technology to allow future EVs to go even further before needing to plug in.
