Chevy has announced it will begin building new GM and GME models, and says it will soon start selling the Chevrolet Bolt, the first of its kind in the US.
The Bolt will be available in the states of Texas, Georgia, Florida, Louisiana, and Alabama starting in late 2019.
The Bolt will come with a 6.2-liter V8 engine that can reach 700hp.
It’s a significant shift from GM’s usual Bolt model range, which offers the same powertrain and performance.
The GM Bolt is the company’s first electric vehicle in the UK, and its first ever mass produced model in the USA.
GM says the Bolt is designed to be a mass-market option, so it should offer a similar range of powertrains and trim levels to the current Bolt range.
It’ll come in four variants: a base Bolt, which will be around $37,500; a Touring Bolt, priced at $55,000; a Sportback, priced between $60,000 and $70,000, and the SUV, which should cost between $70 to $80,000.
It should also come with some optional equipment, including a rearview camera and a front-facing radar system.
GM will also offer a crossover variant, which is more akin to a hatchback.
GM said it will offer an SUV, crossover, and a crossover with an all-wheel-drive option, with an MSRP of around $70 million.
The company will also introduce a new electric vehicle, the Chevrolet Spark, which it says will offer better battery range than the Bolt.
It will start selling in 2019 and cost between £20,000 to £25,000 depending on trim level.
