Few technical details were revealed about the Bolt EV, the lithium ion batteries allow a range of 321km under ideal conditions. Taking into account the estimated cost of the Bolt, the vehicle can become very attractive to consumers.

Visually the Bolt has short front and rear overhangs to maximize the interior space. In order to reduce vehicle weight Chevrolet turned to lightweight materials, including aluminum, magnesium, carbon fiber and woven mesh. The SUV also includes some active aerodynamics technologies, such as the ventilated rear fenders.

In order to adapt to different driving styles, such as daily commuting or weekend trips, the Bolt EV can be driven in different ways. The selection of different modes adjusts throttle response, the height ride and suspension setup.

With seats for four passengers, the Bolt EV cabin includes a 10 inches touch screen on the dashboard. Thanks to the Bolt EV Connect app, the vehicle can be paired with a smartphone, allowing it to function as a remote key and offer and accept car sharing and even park the car autonomously.
