Welcome to the Chevy Bolt EV Forum! This site and owners group is dedicated to the Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept Car that was first unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show.
It was unveiled as a concept electric vehicle, that could be priced around $30,000 after tax rebates, and would have more than 200 miles electric range.
After the fury of media and social media coverage, Chevrolet made the announcement that the Bolt EV would move to production. That was February 12th, 2015, at a special breakfast at the Chicago Auto Show.
As Chevrolet makes more announcements we will keep the reference pages up to date.
Production for the Chevrolet Bolt Electric Vehicle is planned for 2017, so we will keep the Bolt EV forum up to date with the latest news and specifications, availability and even pricing, when it’s finally official!
Congratulations on the great CES debut! I have a couple of questions:
Traction battery warranty?
Is the traction battery water cooled?
Chevrolet didn’t release any details on the battery warranty, or on how the battery pack will be kept cool… sorry! More waiting…
I went to Titus Will Chevy(Olympia, WA) on 10/23/20 to have my 2017 Bolt serviced. (I purchased it in 2019; has 50K miles & I drive 6K miles a year) I brought a list of items to check. However, the first thing intake person asked was for me to have the following 3 things done: Coolant Flush ($150); Transmission Flush ($290); Brake Flush ($140). I realized from the manual, Coolant Flush and Brake Flush would be a 5 yr maintenance, at most. I said no.
But what is a Transmission Flush? In searching the manual, no mention of “transmission” at all. If Chevy Bolts need it, how often? Any background on this would be helpful!
Hi Carolyn, have you posted this in the Chevy Bolt forum? That’s the best way to have other Bolt owners see your question and be able to answer…
