2017 Chevy Bolt EV Revealed in Spy Photos


The all-electric 2017 Chevy Bolt has been revealed early in a set of spy photos. 

Sporting no camouflage at all, we can see that the 2017 Chevy Bolt bears a strong family resemblance to its platform mate, the Chevy Volt. Compared to the concept version of the Bolt, the production has a more raked rear end, giving it sleek looks.

A set of previous spy photos revealed the Bolt’s interior, which takes many of its styling cues from the Volt, though the large touchscreen in the center stack seems larger than the one found in the Volt.

GM has promised that the Bolt will be able to travel 200 miles on a single charge and will cost roughly $30,000 after government incentives have ben applied.

GM will reveal the production version of the 2017 Chevy Bolt at the upcoming consumer electronics show in January.

    Looks like a honda fit

    Yep, that’s not necessarily a “bad thing.” 😉

  • Bug S Bunny

    As usual, the production vehicle looks much worse than the concept.

  • Mariano Palmero

    Looks good… Stop the whinning….

    Not bad at all. I has a bit of the generic CUV/compact hatch familial look so it resembles a whole host of other cars, but it definitely has its own “look”.
    I like. If it has a real world 200 mile range and is as roomy as it looks (it has the pack under the cabin) I may give up my Volt for it.

    I wasn’t a fan of the concept’s styling. This doesn’t “wow” me, but it looks fine.

    It’s too bad concept car designs don’t make it too production, the ELR was a rare exception. I was pleased with the technology advancements in both the 2016 Volt and the promised 200 mile plus EV range of the Bolt. Where GM went really wrong was with the redesign of the 2nd gen Volt which looks like they outsourced their design team to Asia, and in the process lost the muscular Euro lines of the current generation Volt, which in all black is a great looking car. It also appears the same thing has happened to the Bolt in the production version.

    But unlike the Tesla model 3, where are you gonna charge this thing on a long drive?

  • Bill Bugbee

    Anywhere you have electricity, beginning with your garage. Unless you daily commute and/or weekend drive is greater than 200 mile per trip, or your driving long distances to nowhere …no problem.
