ST. LOUIS, Miss. – On day one of the 2015 North American International Auto Show, Chevrolet shared their vision for the not-too-distant-future. That vision call also be called the Chevrolet Bolt EV concept vehicle – an affordable, long-range all-electric vehicle designed to offer more than 200 miles of range with a starting price of $30,000.
This game-changing, fast-charging, all-electric concept vehicle still has some hoops to jump through, but we are certain that Chevrolet’s “vision” will become a reality sooner rather than later. The Bolt EV concept capitalizes on the electrification prowess that has been established by the Chevy Volt and Spark EV. This particular vehicle is designed to offer a long-range performance to customers in the U.S. and other global markets.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV concept vehicle features various lightweight materials like aluminum, magnesium, carbon fiber, and woven mesh to keep its curb weight down to maximize range. The Bolt EV has unique proportions -have practically no front or rear overhang- that help to provide an airy and roomy cabin for four passengers. The interior environment is also amplified with the use of glass all around and a full-length, frosted-glass roof.
Of course, Chevrolet hasn’t forgotten about all of that technology and stuff. The Bolt EV featured an app that implements several unique performance elements. The app is designed to allow a smartphone to act as the key fob and allows for ride-sharing management, including restorations, vehicle location, and even payment processing. It also in corporates the automatic park-and-retrieval technology, which allows the driver to exit the vehicle and the Bolt EV will park itself and then return upon the owner’s request.
