The production version of the Chevrolet Bolt Concept is rumored to get rebadged Opel and Vauxhall versions too.
General Motors is planning on offering a production version of the Chevrolet Bolt in the near future and the model has a pretty good chance of arriving on the Old Continent too, in rebadged Opel and Vauxhall variants. The announcement has been made by sources within the company who have spoken to the Bolt will be offered in Europe but it will be introduced in small numbers, at first at least. No official date for when the Chevrolet version of the model will be introduced or when the Opel / Vauxhall versions will see daylight has been announced at this time.
The Chevrolet Bolt Concept has made its public debut at the beginning of this year, during the 2015 NAIAS, in Detroit. The model in question will be riding on the Gamma global small car platform, signed by General Motors, which will be used on the development of the next Sonic (Aveo) generation too, which has been announced to debut in late 2016. The production Chevy Bolt will be produced at the Orion Township GM facility, where the Chevrolet Sonic and the Buick Verano are also being put together. The Bolt should hit dealerships in early 2017 and it will be priced for approximately 30,000 USD, offering a range of more than 200 miles and aiming towards the BMW i3 and the Tesla Model III.
