Exactly one month after introducing the all-electric Bolt to the world, Chevrolet is now promising to build it. Today the company confirmed that it will produce the Bolt EV as its next generation all-electric vehicle.


Chevrolet also confirmed that the Bolt will be developed with two goals in mind. A 200-mile all-electric range and a $30,000 price tag. While the production vehicle will share the concept's name, don't expect them to look exactly the same. The production version will most likely undergo some styling and functional changes before it goes on sale.

The Bolt will be produced Michigan at the Orion Assembly facility. The company simultaneously announced a $200-million investment to get ready for Bolt production. Orion will receive $160-million for tooling and equipment while Pontiac Metal Center Facilities will receive $40-million for new dies. The Bolt will be produced at the same facility that currently produces the Buick Verano and Chevrolet Spark


Chevrolet has not yet announced a model year or on sale target for the Bolt.


General Motors Says

Leveraging the industry-leading battery technology found in the Chevrolet Volt and Spark EV, the Bolt EV concept was developed as a game-changing, long-range pure electric for all 50 states, designed to offer more than a GM-estimated 200 miles of range at a target price of around $30,000.

Buick Verano & Chevy spark? I thought the Buick Encore was made at Orion with the Spark, and the Verano was made with the Cruze...

 

I am confused.

The Chevy Cruze is produced in Lordstown, Ohio. That is the only model built there.

You live Girard IIRC is close to there so you are probably right... I thought the Verano shared the platform with the Cruze tho... oh well...

Spark is built in Changwon; South Korea; Cruze is made in Lordstown, OH; Verano shares the Orion, MI Plant with the Sonic.

 

but let's hope the Bolt doesn't fall into the same trap as its Bigger Brother the Volt: Its $30K Pricetag is only achievable with a massive Federal Tax Credit.

      So, now that everyone has gotten a look at which trim levels Chevy will offer for 2019 on the Silverado..quick poll! 
    • By Leviaaronjones
      I've got a 2014 5.3L Silverado and yes it has the AFM I want it gone but for now I have to deal with it. I had a flowmaster 40 series installed and resonator cut off, and it is very quiet. I see no flapper valve so I am assuming that he cut it off to (which I was unaware of a flapper valve at the time). My question is, why is it so quiet? Does the AFM make that big of a difference In sound even when in v8? Is the flapper valve still there? Did the guy do something to make the truck quieter (we had a small disagreement while he was installing the system, and after he was done he said "if you ever want it louder we can cut off the 3rd cat"). Any help is greatly appreciated and I am going to try and put pics in the comments cuz it will not let me in the the post.
