Check out the Chevy Bolt EV prototype image

A prototype version of the Chevrolet Bolt has been officially unveiled by the North American based automaker.

Chevrolet has taken yet another step into the final production version of the Bolt by officially pulling the wraps off a prototype. The carmaker didn’t have much to say about it but we are noticing the different side mirrors, the new front bumper and the updated side skirts. The more conventional door handles and the 5-spoke alloy wheels are also noticeable.

“Building on Chevy’s expertise gained from the Volt, the Bolt EV, the game-changing, next-generation all-electric vehicle, is designed to offer more than a GM-estimated 200 miles of range at a target price of around $30,000”, said the automaker in its press release.

The concept variant of the Chevrolet Bolt has been officially unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show, back in January. Initial rumors were saying that the model will be making use of the Gamma global small car platform, which has been created by General Motors. This will also be used on the next generation of the Aveo (Sonic) which will be making its debut in late next year. The Chevrolet Bolt will be put together at the Orion Township facility, owned by GM, and it is expected to hit dealerships across the nation in early 2017. This will be rivaling the BMW i3 and the Tesla Model III. Additional details on it remain unknown at this time.
