This Chevrolet Jolt EV Website is, Disappointingly, Fake

Someone created a convincing, yet fake website for a fake car: The Chevrolet Jolt EV.

With the Chevrolet Bolt on the horizon, it’s hard to believe the American automaker already has another electric vehicle up its sleeves. Well, it doesn’t and the Chevrolet Jolt EV is a creation by Matt Teske, who went above and beyond to not only register a domain name, but create a website that resembles something Chevrolet would have for its products. On the site, Teske imagines what would seems to be the ideal electric vehicle, one that looks like a sports car and has an electric range of over 230 miles. Even more enticing is that it would be priced as low as $30,000 after federal tax credits.

Oh wait, that would be the Tesla Model 3 for some people – except Tesla’s entry-level offering is a sedan and it would be hard to mistake it for a sports car.

But still, it’s rather impressive the time and effort spent in creating the website along with numerous social media profiles on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter that helps make it appear legitimate. Alas, we can’t imagine it will stay live for very long as we’re confident Chevrolet and GM are preparing cease-and-desist letters to Teske, considering the Chevrolet logo is used throughout the website.

    Looks like an 4th gen eclipse.

  • The car itself seems to be a render of Chevrolet’s own Tru 140S concept.

    Hopefully this guy doesn’t get sued. These automakers don’t take kindly to unauthorized brand name use…
