Chevy Begins Testing Its Tesla Model 3 Challenger
General Motors has begun testing of the Bolt electric car, which it revealed this past January at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. It was only a few weeks later that it announced it would put the all-electric concept car into production with a sales launch date of 2017, putting it into direct competition with Tesla's forthcoming Model 3, due out in the same time frame, presumably near the end of the year.
Not only are the launch dates similar, so are the claims of 200 miles driving range per charge, which GM is now claiming for the test version of the car, as seen in the below video. The company also announced that it would be priced in the low $30,000 range, presumably after the $7,500 federal tax credit. That puts it in direct competition with the Model 3, the design of which should be revealed later this year. If the $30K price is achieved, that will put it at $5,000 less than the Tesla model.
