The Chevrolet Bolt EV Is Coming Back. Here’s What We Know (and Hope It’ll Have)

From Transport Evolved.

Earlier this year, General Motors confirmed that the Bolt EV would end production at the end of this year – and we, among many others lamented the loss of an affordable electric vehicle that wasn’t a massive SUV or pickup truck.

But earlier this week, GM CEO Mary Barra confirmed that the Bolt EV will return as a Ultium-based model.

Here’s what we know (not a lot), as well as some of our speculation on what the next-generation Bolt EV should be like.
