General Motors to unveil production Bolt EV at CES 2016

According to The Verge, General Motors is planning to unveil the production version of the Chevrolet Bolt at the upcoming Consumer Electronics Show on January 6-9, 2016 in Las Vegas. General Motors executive vice president Mark Reuss made the announcement at the 2015 LA Auto Show.

Over the past 10 years or so, CES has quickly moved from a consumer electronics marketplace to a car show – mostly because of the advanced technology now being put in vehicles.

This year GM CEA Mary Barra is the keynote speaker, so it makes sense she wants something big to announce, and right now, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is the biggest thing right now.

January’s CES is about 1 year since the Bolt EV 200-mile concept electric vehicle was first unveiled. The Bolt, if ready to sell in early 2016, will be the first 200 mile ‘affordable’ electric vehicle to hit the market and will go head to head with Tesla’s Model 3 which is expected to be unveiled in early 2016 for 2017 production.

GM has said the Bolt EV will have a price well under $40,000 when it hits the market.Chevy Bolt EV Spy Photo
