2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV: At CES 2016
January 5, 2016
Las Vegas, Nevada
LAS VEGAS - Chevrolet is introducing the 2017 Bolt EV at the Consumer
Electronics Show, fulfilling its promise to offer a long-range, affordable electric
vehicle for the masses.
The Bolt EV, which will go into production by the end of 2016, will offer more than
200 miles of range on a full charge. It also features advanced connectivity
technologies designed to enhance and personalize the driving experience.
“It was less than a year ago that we revealed the Bolt EV concept and promised to
deliver a long-range electric vehicle attainable by the masses,” GM Chairman and
CEO Mary Barra said. “The Bolt EV is capable of using the latest mobile app
technology to enable car sharing, advanced GPS routing and gamification, all
designed to enhance the ownership experience now and into the future.”
Connectivity Simplifies Ownership Experience
The Bolt EV benefits directly from the suggestions and ideas of Volt owners and
features technologies that make owning a long-range electric vehicle easy.
The Bolt EV’s connectivity innovations will provide smart, personalized solutions for
managing the driving experience. For example, in the future an accurate driving
range projection will be based on the time of day, typography, weather and the
owner’s driving habits.
Bluetooth low-energy – designed specifically for the Bolt EV to minimize energy
draw – seamlessly connects a smart phone to the car while the owner approaches
Many of the Bolt EV’s driver-focused technologies are supported by OnStar 4G LTE,
which turns the Bolt EV into a Wi-Fi hotspot, giving owners easier access to apps
and services via a high-speed wireless connection.
