Chevy Bolt Released at Show 322 kilometres EV

Will it come to Australia? Who knows?

Would you be interested in a 200 Mile / 321.8 kilometres Pure BEV ?   

Heres the Link..

Must say. I enjoy driving the volt on mainly electricity round town just charging up once or twice a week, and just use some petrol , and keep driving, for long trips.

I would be interested in one of these, depending on price. The $30,000 in the US is after subsidies, and is in USD. So a rough guess might be $70,000 Australian dollars out here. How do I guess that? My Volt was approx $40,000 USD, but I paid $54,000, and some paid $62000 Australian Dollars. The Bolt will be around $40,000 without incentives in US Dollars. So that in todays exchange rate is approx . $57,000. As we get no subsidies in Australia for buying electric, and we have import duties, shipping to Australia of around $5-6 k, I am guessing approx $70k Aud.

That might be too much for that car in Australia, but what else is there with say 322 kilometres range, and at what price, and what battery warranty.

Good to see GM being early on the Bolt.   I checked the Tesla website, and prices there for a new S ..wow... out of my league I think!

Happy 2016 to all Aeva forum folks... Marty
