Chevy Bolt EV Concept Vehicle Details

The Bolt unveiled at the 2015 NAIAS is technically a concept, so some of these specifications could very well change before the vehicle is production ready in late 2016/early 2017.

  • 200+ mile range
  • 3 driving modes for daily commuting, spirited weekend cruising, and uncompromising electric driving. The various driving modes in the Bolt will adjust accelerator mapping, vehicle ride height, and even suspension stiffness.
  • With practically no front or rear overhang, the Bolt EV concept makes the most of interior space providing seating for 5 adults.
  • Bolt EV Connect App will allow smartphone to be used as the key fob, allow ride sharing management, including reservations, key sharing, and even payment processing via a smartphone.
  • A 10-inch touch screen that controls the Bolt EV Connect app as well as allows projection of other smartphone data onto the screen
  • High-intensity LED headlights and taillamps increase visibility while reducing power consumption
  • Rear fenders are vented to improve overall aerodynamics
  • Lightweight materials like aluminum and carbon fiber help keep down the curb weight
  • will share the same Gamma platform as the next-generation Chevrolet Sonic (Gamma G2SC platform)

There is still much we don’t know about the Chevy Bolt electric vehicle (like EPA range, battery size and composition, MPGe efficiency rating etc), but expect Chevy to come out with more specific details in the near future. A production ready version of the vehicle could debut at the LA Auto Show later this year, or perhaps at the Detroit Auto Show in January 2016.

      No one knows yet – speculation is somewhere around the LEAF (3300lbs) and Volt weight (3700 lbs). The Chevy Bolt EV will be more like the size of the i3 (3000 lbs), but have a larger/heavier battery pack which will increase the weight to be more like the larger LEAF and Volt.
