General Motors launch the Chevrolet Bolt
Ok, it’s no looker but GM have launched what is probably the first real, mass market electric car. The Chevrolet Bolt.
Costing $30,000 in the US, so around £24,000, the bolt offers 238 miles of range, so it’s a properly usable EV which might take a lot of sales from the Golf/Prius segment.
We should expect something similar wearing a Vauxhall badge over here next year. Whether it will share the name of the late and wholly unlamented Ampera remains to be seen.
