Chevrolet Bolt EV to disappear from lineup as new technology rolls out

Standard Motors’ most inexpensive and available electrical car at present in the lineup — the Chevrolet Bolt — will sooner or later vanish to make way for more EVs on the automaker’s Ultium system. 

GM has mentioned the future Equinox EV, to be discovered in September, is predicted to start out at about $30,000, producing it one of the most economical EVs GM provides. The 2023 Bolt EV will start out at $26,595 and the EUV will start at $28,195. 

The Bolt and Bolt EUV, an SUV styling of the vehicle, are on the automaker’s BEV2 system, which stands for battery electric powered vehicle. 

But GM’s forthcoming EVs will be run by its proprietary Ultium battery propulsion process, increasing the question: How much longer will the Bolt be appropriate to Chevrolet’s lineup?

“Will Bolt be in our portfolio ‘x’ numbers of many years from now? No, it won’t,” Steve Majoros, Chevy’s vice president of advertising and marketing, explained to the Free of charge Press on Monday. “It’s a excellent solution correct now. It will be with us for some time. But as we scale and ramp volume right here, portfolios improve.”

Majoros would not affirm timing for when the Bolt EVs will exit the lineup, but he said, “It’s going to be with us for the foreseeable upcoming and as we ramp portfolio, then we’ll see about the long activity for that, so … more to occur.”
