Chevrolet isn’t being coy about the 2017 Bolt EV. They want everyone to know loud and clear that the pure electric vehicle will be world class, and refined.
Now that the market is warming up to the idea of electric vehicles, and engineering costs slump from their original heights, the 2017 Bolt EV shouldn’t have an issue finding fans. That’s why Chevrolet has green-car fanatics boarding the hype train with a new video highlighting the car’s testing process.
We recently had our first look at a production Chevrolet Bolt EV in a set of spy shots, as the car made a few paces around the Milford proving grounds. This video takes place at the same location, and we get an even greater look of the exterior here. The interior is carefully absent from camera time, however.
The quirky hatchback shape is still present, and it’s easy to see production-spec head and taillights on the camouflaged prototype vehicle. The team is seen performing range tests, hill climbs, braking exercise and more, as General Motors aims to do battle with Tesla’s affordable-incoming Model 3.
We don’t know when Chevrolet will be ready to showcase a production version of its next chapter into electrification, but work is well underway.
