Milford Proving Grounds is already testing pre-production Bolt EV Test Mules

According to a recent press release by GM, there are 55 pre-production cars already built. GM has assembled the 55 Bolt EVs by hand at the Orion plant in Michigan and in South Korea where the Chevy Spark EV is being produced.

There are over 1,000 engineers being tasked with speeding along the program. Head of Chevy EVs, Pam Fletcher, said “They’re running fast, the fact that we can show you fifty-something cars running is busy.”

Also interesting is that GM says the cars are already exceeding the 200-mile range target in tests.

Chevrolet Bolt final production version will be unveiled sometime in 2016, and is expected to begin production in October of 2016, with plans to arrive in early to mid 2017 as a 2018 model year.

The Bolt Electric Vehicle will be available in all 50 states (unlike the Spark EV that is only available in CARB states) and some select markets internationally.
