General Motors (GM) on January 12 introduced the Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle (EV) concept, an all-electric vehicle designed to offer more than 200 miles of driving range. In making the announcement at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit, the automaker said it is planning to market the vehicle for around $30,000.

GM said it will leverage the EV line established by the Volt and Spark EV. The Bolt EV concept is also designed to support DC fast-charging. The four-person concept car features lightweight materials, including aluminum, magnesium, carbon fiber and even woven mesh, to reduce vehicle weight. The concept also includes high-intensity, efficient light-emitting diode headlamps and taillamps.

Also, Chevrolet unveiled the new 2016 Volt electric car with 50 miles of EV range, among other things. The Volt’s new propulsion system will offer a GM-estimated total driving range of more than 400 miles. With regular charging of the Volt, owners are expected to travel more than 1,000 miles on average between gas fill-ups.
