General Motors has released the first photos of the Chevrolet Bolt battery-electric vehicle being tested at the company's proving ground in Milford, Mich.

The Bolt will arrive as GM's first battery-electric vehicle offering a 200-mile range and priced at $30,000. GM plans to begin production of the Bolt EV in October 2016, and the vehicle is expected to go on sale in early 2017, according to a February Reuters report citing two supplier sources.

GM is also investing $245 million in its Orion Assembly facility near Detroit to build the Bolt, the company recently announced.

    Oh well, good to see another electric vehicle but it is 3 years late and reinforces the idea that electric vehicles are glorified golf carts. Where are the electric Ford Transits in all sizes? Where are the competitors to Tesla?
    Where are the ads telling people about the far fewer parts in electric vehicles making them easier to maintain? Where are the ads telling people about not dripping oil in their garages?
    We have tried telling people that burning stuff is bad for our environment and people don't care, they just tell us how wonderfully cheap gas is.
    When are we going to make fun of ICE vehicles?
