GM Chevrolet Bolt EV To Take On Tesla Model III In Battery-driven Car Battle
It seems that Tesla Model III has made itself a strong competitor even before launch.
General Motors has also revealed footage of its battery-powered car Chevrolet Bolt EV, the all-electric model set to be released in 2017.
The battle of battery-driven cars is expected to reach another level with GM bringing Bolt EV at $30,000. On the other hand, the Tesla vehicle will cost around $35,000 when it hits the market in 2017.
The GM car is said to be a fast one with the capability of running 200 miles in just one charge. With the advanced charging arrangement, the car be charged 80% in just 45 minutes, as reported by Tech Times.
Tesla also has another car that has a running range of 270 miles on a single charge. Tesla Model S 85D, the car in question, will cost around $85,000, which keeps itself out of the race of pocket-friendly, battery-driven cars. The Kia Soul EV will run at 93 and will cost around $33,700, which does not make sense when comparing it with the GM and Tesla III model.
General Motors has taken care of all aspects of the new model and has inserts between the wheel spokes to decrease drag. The model was shown in the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, and the new video shows only a demo.
The battery-driven car is the future of the vehicle industry and companies are keen to get their first bite on the market. These vehicles will be cheaper than diesel-powered vehicles that are now available. The batteries are easier to replace than engines and many of the customers will be happy with the advanced charging facility compared to fuel refilling.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV will be built in the GM Orion Assembly in Township, Michigan, as reported by The Hoop News.
