The Chevrolet Bolt ceases to be a concept car and is set to go into production by the end of this year. The concept version of the car was shown last year in January and the production ready was showcased yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The compact hatchback is a long-range vehicle and promises to deliver a 200 miles range on full charge.

Mary Barra, GM Chairman and CEO said, "It was less than a year ago that we revealed the Bolt EV concept and promised to deliver a long-range electric vehicle attainable by the masses, The Bolt EV is capable of using the latest mobile app technology to enable car sharing, advanced GPS routing and gamification, all designed to enhance the ownership experience now and into the future."

Unlike the Volt, the Bolt would not be equipped with a gasoline engine for extending the range. However, to mitigate range anxiety, the Bolt would be equipped with advanced driving range indicator that would consider factors like driving habits, time of day, weather, terrain etc. to calculate the range of the car. The car would also have features like low-energy Bluetooth and Sat Nav that would optimize routes to minimise energy consumption.

Some other interesting features include a wireless smartphone charging dock, surround vision system, customizable, widget-based 'flip-board style' operation. The Bolt EV would be adopting a “Gamification” approach to promote efficient driving that would let owners compete by comparing their individual driving styles and determine who has the most efficient driving style.

The list of features does not end there, the My Chevrolet Mobile App provides the owner with relevant information about the vehicle and enhances experience by letting them schedule a service, remote start and pre-condition the car cabin.
