Will go into production in late-2016.

Chevrolet has unveiled the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, the production version of the Chevrolet Bolt EV concept, at the CES 2016 in Las Vegas. Borrowing styling cues from the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt remains close to the concept it evolves from. As promised with the concept’s introduction in Detroit last year, Chevrolet has announced that the production version offers a driving range of more than 200 miles (322 km).

The EV has a wheelbase of 102.4-inches (2,600 mm) and 16.9 ft³ (478 liters) of cargo space. The full technical specifications are expected to be revealed at the 2016 North American International Motor Show in Detroit next week.
