GM is bringing a few minor updates and 3 new color options to Chevy Bolt EV 2019
According to a recent EV magazine Electrek’s report, General Motors (GM) is bringing some new updates to its sole all-electric vehicle, the Chevy Bolt EV, with the forthcoming release of the vehicle’s third model year.
The Electrek report about updates coming to GM’s Chevy Bolt EV is based on the information obtained from the 2019 Bolt EV equipment list documentation sent by the automaker to its dealer network. The Chevy Bolt EV 2019 will likely reach dealerships close to the end of 2018.
As per the indications from the dealer documentation, the Chevy Bolt EV is chiefly being updated with some connectivity features, including smartphone access for car sharing. GM’s emphasis on car sharing is also evident from the introduction of a new option called ‘Smartphone interface.’ The option essentially includes “vehicle entry, start and operation, and car sharing.”
In addition, GM is also introducing three new color options for the Chevy Bolt EV 2019 --- Slate Gray Metallic, Shock, and Green Mist Metallic.
However, the dealer documentation also shows that GM is apparently not giving any powertrain update to the Chevy Bolt EV 2019. The new model year Chevy Bolt EV will still be equipped with the same 60 kWh battery pack and 150 kW electric motor.
