The electric vehicle segment is heating up.

The newest entry is the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, which actually made an appearance at the 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES). On display at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show, the all-electric Bolt will be capable of traveling over 200 miles on a single charge while being priced at $37,500. According to the American automaker, fully charging the Bolt will take nine hours with a 240-watt charger, replenishing about 25 miles per hour.

    looks like the results of a best practices, combining the space efficiency of a Honda Fit and the trendy EV power plant. Bravo Chevrolet for an excellent effort. Will there be a stretch version to enhance the status of owning an EV? Any way to extend the driving distance as range anxiety still may exist with a 200 mile drive before a recharge? Will there be an ultra performance version to rival the Tesla platform?
