There’s been a bunch of back and forth about the name of GM’s upcoming 200 mile electric vehicle. GM itself admitted there was confusion about the Bolt vs Volt naming, and wasn’t sure what to do.
Well, now it’s official. Chevrolet’s marketing boss Tim Mahoney has said “The decision is made. The name won’t be changed.” He even mentioned how synergies between the Bolt and Volt name can help with marketing, as everyone already knows the Volt is a Chevrolet.
Mahoney didn’t give any updates on the vehicle production schedule, so we’re still sticking to what we’ve been told – production for late 2017/early 2018.
