«Due to a flurry of embargo breaks, we now have access to the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt details that will be “officially” revealed later today.
In bullet point format, here’s what General Motors will reveal at 4 PM EST today in regards to the 2017 Bolt:
- 9 hours to fully recharge on Level 2 (likely 6.6 kW or higher)
- EPA-estimated range of 200 miles or more
- Available in late 2016
- Expected output of [about] 150 HP
- [Approx.] 300 pound-feet of torque
- 0 to 60 MPH in [about] 7 seconds
- Top speed of more than 90 MPH
- DC fast charger will recharge car from 0 to 80% in 45 minutes (more than 50 kW?)
- Price still claimed to be less than $30,000 after the $7,500 tax credit
- 2-inch touchscreen
- Exterior structure is made of aluminium, carbon fiber and mineral magnesium
- Battery tucked under floor
- Seating for 5
- 4 USB ports, as well as the 4G LTE
Separately, the Detroit Free Press leaked out some drive notes:
“General Motors’ first all-electric vehicle is not just a real car, it has surprising agility, a larger-than-expected interior and decent quick acceleration.
Those were my impressions after a brief drive with the Chevrolet Bolt in a large parking lot across from the Las Vegas Convention Center this afternoon.
With a maximum speed of slightly more than 90 miles per hour — I did not reach that in my modest trip — the Bolt works quite well in urban driving where maneuverability is crucial.”
