    GM has long stated that it plans to start deliveries of the Chevy Bolt EV by the end of 2016. It was since revealed in March that the all-electric vehicle entered pre-production on the Orion Assembly line. We later learned that GM is planning for the start of regular volume production of the 2017 Bolt in October 2016.

    Now it looks like the vehicle will be on the road sooner than anticipated and not necessarily in the hands of customers, but through GM’s partnership with Lyft, a popular ride-sharing company. more…

    Looks like this mock up of the Bolt includes everything under body (washer/wiper mechanics, climate control, etc.). The chassis we are used to seeing in the showroom are just the drivetrain, suspension, and battery.

    This car is being built on the same line as ICE cars so they have to use the same tooling etc... So the motors, inverters etc have to go in the same place as a car engine.

    GM would radically have to alter their manufacturing if they designed the drive train the same way Tesla did. And if there's anything GM knows how to do is to leverage existing infrastructure to keep costs down. Look how many cars they used to have that only had different lights or door handles and were sold under different badges!
