2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Is In Production
 

General Motors started to make the new Bolt electric car.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV set the range benchmark for an affordable EV capable of going the distance by offering an EPA-rated 238 miles on a full charge. General Motors has began manufacturing of the Chevrolet Bolt hatchbacks in factory in Orion Township, Michigan, north of Detroit according to an AP report on Yahoo.

Chevrolet offers the Bolt EV a base Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of $37,495 including destination charge. Depending on individual tax situations, customers may receive an available federal tax credit of up to $7,500 for a net value of $29,995.

The 2017 Bolt will start shipping end of the year in select markets. The details of the roll-out are not clear yet. Unlike Tesla, GM is not offering a pre-order option for the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt electric car. The Bolt will be on Americans streets earlier than the Tesla Model 3.

Bolt's range of 238 miles beats the range that Tesla has announced for the Model 3. The current specifications of the Model 3 state a range of 215 miles. This might still change. The Model 3 has not been fully unveiled yet. A second unveil event is expected to take place end of this year or early 2017.
