Bye Bye, Bolt – CleanTechnica


After six years, the Chevy Bolt EV and Bolt EUV will quickly be retired.

Whereas it wasn’t clean crusing for all of these six years, the Bolt EV was the primary mass-market long-range EV for Chevy, and it has some very loyal homeowners. Early on, there was the minor situation of the automobile’s seats not being too snug (one thing some homeowners took into their very own fingers by boosting the automobile’s cushioning) — GM listened to its prospects and made the seats extra snug. Extra dramatically, there was the recall over the battery pack. And, for a lot of, the confusion of Bolt versus Volt was an ideal instance of EV advertising gone improper.

The Bolt EUV was the primary Chevrolet to supply GM’s hands-free driving expertise with Tremendous Cruise.

After my 2011 Nissan LEAF met with an unlucky destiny, I discovered the Bolt EV was the perfect car for my wants. However, with its new Ultium Platform and better DC fast-charging speeds, the Bolt shall be quickly within the rear-view mirror, making approach for the brand new Chevy Blazer EV, Chevy Equinox EV, and Silverado EV.

Manufacturing of the Bolt EV and EUV will proceed at Orion Meeting till late this 12 months after which shall be transformed to supply electrical vans.

The Chevy EV DNA will proceed with the hopes of much more compelling causes for people to drive electrical.

Right here at CleanTechnica, we carried out a restricted paywall for some time, but it surely all the time felt improper — and it was all the time powerful to resolve what we should always put behind there. In idea, your most unique and greatest content material goes behind a paywall. However then fewer folks learn it! We simply don’t love paywalls, and so we have determined to ditch ours.

Sadly, the media enterprise continues to be a tricky, cut-throat enterprise with tiny margins. It is a endless Olympic problem to remain above water and even maybe — gasp — develop. So …
