Detroit Auto Show has again proven that it is one of the most important auto shows worldwide with many new vehicles and impressive concepts. One of those concepts could be the announcement of the 2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV since this concept comes with a few great promises that we would really like to see on the streets.
At this point this vehicle is only a concept and we can easily agree with that but still, there are many details that point toward the possibility for it to be developed further and delivered to the market. Possibilities are huge and we expect it to be offered as 2016 or 2017 model but even more we liked the idea of a pretty cheap electric vehicle that can offer impressive range and all that into one attractive and affordable package.
Let’s take a look at what we know so far about the 2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV. Among the most important things is the fact that it will come with about 200 miles of range. We do not have any details about battery capacity or the technology that will be used but we are sure that Li-Ion or Li-Po will be in place and capacity of about 50 to 60 KWh is something that we would count on. Another thing that we could hear is the price. Chevrolet promises that it will price this car quite competitively at about $30,000 after incentives and we can agree with the statement that this is one quite competitive price tag.
Review Of 2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV
It is interesting about the price that it has been delivered with included incentives, after you get all those refunds and similar. Problem might be in the way that those incentives work. Currently this is set so that every car maker has a limit of 200,000 units that will receive incentives after which some incentives are gone. Also, as a release date we could hear 2016th but it also might come as a 2017th model or even slightly later, we know how the car industry works. With growing sales of incentive fulfill vehicles and introduction of one new model in the lineup that also comes with similar incentives capabilities Chevrolet might be quite close to that 200,000 units limit.
Incentives is something that significantly reduces the price of any vehicle that is offered and it was interesting to get more info about the 2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV and possibilities that Chevy presented in this segment. Main reason why this car has been presented in this way, with already included incentives even we do not know what the situation will be in the future, was because it is simpler way to explain it to people, that is at least a statement from Chevy representatives.
2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept
There is no doubt that Chevrolet has decent amount of knowledge about electric cars and electric powertrains and this will allow them to deliver this new model. There are only few EV’s on the market that do not jeopardize the cabin space with battery packs and similar but with Bolt EV we will be getting more practicality and a real car for real people. It will be able to hit 200 miles on one charge, will be handsome and will be quite compact allowing it to offer more space in interior with improved battery packs.
We are waiting for more details about the 2016 Chevrolet Bolt EV and the possibility for this model to come on the market. There are strong assurances that it will be offered as either 2016 or 2017 model and with features we already mentioned. If everything comes as promised we expect that it will be more than interesting for large number of buyers and that we will see this and similar cars on the market more often. Concept might receive few changes before it is production ready but looking at these images we can agree that we could expect to see only small differences when it comes to the market.
