The Chevrolet Bolt EV concept was unveiled at the 2015 North American International Auto Show in January and was confirmed for production in February.

In June, GM released a video which showed Bolt EV prototypes being tested at its Milford Proving Grounds in Michigan. Among other things, the prototypes were being tested for the handling dynamics, cabin comfort, quietness, charging capability, and energy efficiency.

The production version is expected to be nearly identical to the concept and digital artist Shoeb Kalania has depicted his impression of the same in a new rendering. Changes speculated include a restyled front bumper and grille, slightly bigger headlamps, bigger ORVMs and different LED taillights. The Bolt EV will have support for DC charging and will offer a range of over 200 miles (322 km).
