Besides the 2016 Chevrolet Volt, General Motors also brought the Chevrolet Bolt EV Concept at the 2015 North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). The small vehicle previews an affordable, yet long-range all-electric vehicle that was designed to offer more than 200 miles (320 km) of range.
According to the official press release, the Bolt EV features unique proportion, with practically no front or rear overhang, which means plenty of interior space. As you can see from the photos, the interior features lightweight materials such as aluminum, carbon fiber and magnesium as well as woven mesh.
In addition, the Bolt EV features a frosted glass roof with unique, faceted design elements. Moreover, there is a high beltline that sweeps upward with the D-pillar, which culminates in an integrated roof spoiler. The advanced nano-composite rear hatch as well as the stylish wraparound rear window also give the Bolt EV a distinctive appearance.
The Bolt EV also features high-intensity light-emitting diode (LED) headlights and taillights, housed behind jewel-like faceted lenses. As we said, the interior offers plenty of room for the passengers and features a minimalist center console and slim-architecture seats mounted on exposed aluminum pedestals.
What’s more interesting is that the Bolt EV Concept allows the driver to use a smartphone as the key fob, allows ride-sharing management such as reservations, vehicle location and even payment processing via smartphone and also incorporates the automatic park-and-retrieval technology. The design is completed by the 10-inch diagonal capacitive-touch screen.
