2017 Chevy Bolt EV coming to Edmonton, AB
After nearly of hanging in the fringes of the electric vehicle class, the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV was officially introduced to the waiting crowd at The 2016 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. During every step of the development process, Chevrolet has promised that the Bolt will be a highly-capable electric car with impressive range without sacrificing affordability. During the presentation, General Motors Chairwoman and CEO Mary Barra, announced that the automaker will begin production of the new 2017 Bolt EV at the end of the 2016 calendar-year. This means that the all-new electrically-powered Bolt will be available at dealership’s like Don Wheaton during the beginning of next year.
In order for Chevrolet designers and engineers to find success with the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV did not need to reinvent the wheel, as it were. Many lessons learned during the development of the new generation of the Chevy Volt played an important role in building the all-new Chevy Bolt EV. The end result is a highly affordable all electrically-powered hatchback that will be able to achieve 200 miles of total range.
“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 in a Chevy press release. “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.”
Chevy engineers have also modified a few existing technologies to better fit the goals of the 2017 Bolt EV. Most prominently, they have a specially designed Bluetooth system that is built to use less power than standard units without compromising functionality. Additionally, the systems of the 2017 Bolt EV weren’t just meant to cater to the incredible level of technology that is currently slated to be included. They had the foresight to leave room open for improvements to the MyChevrolet App and Chevy MyLink systems which could have the ability to analyze a huge amount of data to help suggest more efficient routes to regularly visited locations and have the ability for drivers sharing the electric car to keep track of how efficiently they are operating from behind the wheel.
