Hi all,

This week's poll question is about news that Chevy has announced the upcoming Bolt, a car that can go over two hundred miles on a charge and will cost around $30,000. Discuss here if you think this represents a major step forward for electric vehicles, and, if you like, the poll results themselves.

Thanks,
Justin

A big drawback to electric cars has always been miles per charge, so I do regard it as a major step forward, although still less than conventional fuel at present. However, I'm from the UK and our overall travelling distances are small compared to the USA.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I thought for a moment this was a reference to some new bolt (a screw that usually has a nut to go with it; or else screws into a pre-tapped hole).

And was Chevrolet now coming up with something special; and thus likely tres expensive if also designed to fit the Cadillac product line... (A lot of Chevy ancillary parts fit Cadillacs - and cost a fraction of the Cadillac versions....)

But then of course the penny/cent dropped...

There could be a nut behind the wheel!

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Curiously they named it (perhaps a little too) closely to the "spontaneously-combustible" Chevy Volt. Hopefully it won't have the same issue.

I guess this electric car must be the number 1 reason why too many gas station owners around USA decided to bail out of business for potential lost income from gas sales.

With gas prices getting lower by the day there is little incentive to buy an electric car.
More E-cars sales would fuel better battery/power-source research and eventually produce a car with an acceptable range and refuelling options.

Who names these things? Apple calls their new stylus a 'pencil' and Chevy's new car is a 'bolt'. Did they survey a local third grade classroom to find those jewels?

Possibly Chevy are concerned about and anticipating another of their designs spontaneously comusting.. Which of course it does, then one will naturally " bolt " from it pretty sharpish
