The interior includes features not found at the price, including a 10.2-inch color touch screen in the center stack. It has a redesigned Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system that is customizable, allowing the users to set icon locations to their liking.
The navigation system can show routes that maximize the vehicle’s electric range and locations of nearby charging stations.
The rearview mirror uses a camera to provide an augmented wide-angle view, a feature also included on the forthcoming Cadillac CT6. It also includes a 360-degree bird’s eye view of the car’s surroundings.
GM is withholding some details of the Bolt for next week’s auto show in Detroit, such as horsepower and torque ratings. Engineers said it will cover 0 to 60 mph in less than 7 seconds.
Chevy officials were so eager to have the automotive press experience the Bolt that they offered short test drives to journalists here -- a rarity for a car that’s almost a year from its on-sale date.
