  • The Chevrolet Bolt is going in Production while collaborating with LG Electronics

Chevy Bolt’s parts will be supplied by LG for the coming 6 years.

The Chevrolet Bolt which is an all-electric vehicle will go on sale later this year. This week Chevy signed a contract with electronics company, LG Electronics to provide the parts of Bolt. The company will provide the parts of Bolt for the coming 6 years for production. This contract was signed at the headquarters of GM motors.

This is not the first time that LG will be working on an electric car. According to a Korean news website, LG has already been providing parts for Volt which is an EV. Thus it won’t be the first time that LG will go off to build an EV.

The Chevy Bolt will be available in $37,500 and its electric battery will weigh around 1000 pounds, according to AutoBlog via Hybird Cars. The company is tight lipped about the kind of parts that will be manufactured by LG. The car however is supposed to have a 60 kWh battery that will provide about 200 miles per charge which is a great achievement.

The prototype which was introduced earlier on of Bolt had the chance of being tested till 50 miles. This car is being compared to Tesla Model 3. The comparison is made due to the price range and the per charge miles being provided by this small EV.

The Chevy officials have earlier said that it will have the ability to go from 0 to 60 miles per hour in mere 7 seconds flat. This will make Bolt one of the quickest EV cars introduced up till now. 

Chevy is also looking to indulge in self—driving technology. They are also planning to pair self-driving and EV modules in a same place for vehicles. Let’s see how long it takes for the company to achieve this target.
