The little all electric runabout (bolt) will drive the infrastructure. Once the public has the charger installed, they will be much more open to electric vehicles. 200 miles is enough for running around all day in a given city and removing the range anxiety. With my volt, I occasionally need the range extender...But only for 10-15 miles.
The Chevy Bolt will usher in a new age for GM. This is because a major auto player is pushing out electric cars. These cars will make it to the dealers in larger quantities and will therefore make them more popular amongst the general public. Electric cars will at least be a small part of the future.
Yes, the 2017 Chevy Bolt will position GM as a serious player in the electric car marketplace, because they are one of the first ones to come out with such a product. With some clever marketing, when we think of electric cars, we will think of the Chevy Bolt. The first in time will be the most popular.
The improved technology presented by General Motors in the 2017 Chevy Bolt will position the company as a major sales power in the marketplace for electric cars. The demand for electric cars is steadily growing and the cost the technology is dropping to an affordable level. The $30,000 estimated cost of the Bolt hits the sweet spot of the growing electric car market.
Electric cars will only be the calling cards of those who try to appear to be environmentally conscious. Electric cars on the whole are way more expensive than a simple run of the mill sedan, and therefore out of reach financially from most. Unless access to electric cars is made more convenient, cars like the Bolt will only cater to a small demographic.
