General Motors CEO Mary Barra unveiled Chevrolet’s Bolt electric concept car Monday morning at the North American International Auto Show at Detroit’s Cobo Hall.
The Bolt, a hatchback that recalls the look of BMW’s electric i3, is expected to arrive in 2017 priced at $30,000 and represents GM’s commitment to mass-producing electric vehicles for a mainstream audience.
“This is no stripped-down science experiment,” Barra said. “It’s an all-electric vehicle for the real world, one that satisfies the needs not just of our customers in California, but in the 50 states and select markets around the world. For most people, this can be their everyday driver.”
“This is truly an EV for everyone,” Barra said. “The kind of innovation that will raise the bar for electric vehicles around the globe.”
