The Bolt EV is said to have more than 200 miles of range on a full battery charge. The expected selling price should be below $30,000 after Federal tax credits when the Bolt EV goes into production before the end of 2016. It’s a tough market segment to enter. During 2015 the hybrid Chevrolet Volt tallied U.S. sales of 15,000, a -18% decline year-over year. Nissan Leaf EV sales at 17,000 declined -43%. Toyota Prius hybrid sales of 185,000 dropped -11% as the electrified segment languished while truck and SUV sales flourished and the overall light vehicle market grew almost 6%.
