General Motors planned to release an updated Chevrolet Bolt electric car this year, but according to a source citing a letter from a company spokeswoman, the release of the updated Chevrolet Bolt electric car was postponed until 2021.
“As a result of the current business situation, we decided to release the updated Bolt electric car in 2021 as the 2022 model, and the Bolt EUV remains on schedule,” the source of the line from the letter quotes.
It is easy to understand that the “current business situation” in the company means the impact on the industry and the global economy of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The updated version of the Chevrolet Bolt is expected to have a sportier design, more comfortable seats, more cameras for adaptive cruise control, an improved infotainment system and other changes.
The automaker stopped production throughout North America to discourage the spread of coronavirus. Production will be resumed when it becomes safe.
