Second-Gen Chevrolet Bolt Said To Arrive In 2025

The Chevrolet Bolt, along with its European cousin the Opel Ampera-e, has only been around since 2016, but it appears that the second generation is already being planned.

Tipped to go into production in January 2025, a few months after its public debut, it will be joined by the Cruise AV, reports Autoforecast Solutions.

The latter is essentially an autonomous version of the next-gen Chevy Bolt. Both cars will share a new architecture dedicated to electric vehicles, built by General Motors, which will be a welcomed departure from the current platform.

Watch: Is The Chevrolet Bolt The EV We’ve Been Waiting For?

Expect a larger battery back, compared to the 60kWh Li-Ion used by today’s Bolt, and likely a more powerful electric motor. We’ll remind you that the electric hatchback has 200hp (203PS / 150kW) and 266lb-ft (360Nm) of torque available on tap, takes 6.5sec to sprint from 0 to 60mph (0-96km/h) and can travel for up to 238 miles (383 km) on a single charge, as per EPA.

Chevrolet’s foray into the electric car market will continue with more zero-emission vehicles. It’s believed that besides the next Bolt and Cruise AV, the same platform will be the foundation stone for at least 9 other cars, some of which will be crossovers. By using the same nuts and bolts, GM estimates that it will cut production costs by some 30 percent.

Note: The Chevy Bolt report starts at the 1:25 mark

    The Chevy Bolt is shaming the over-hyped Tesla Model 3 by a wide margins. GM can actually build them and sell them too.

    Poor Tesla…

    ….okay.

  • Bash

    …. 2025? Why the rush? Just take your time.

  • Six Thousand Times

    It’s a great platform and you can bet Bolt buyers will be better off in five years time than Model 3 owners. But Chevy, please make a sexier-looking version than this box.

  • MarketAndChurch

    They’re probably talking platform and battery technology when they say “generation.” I think the Bolt will probably have one or two facelifts in the meantime.

    So there’s a Chevy Volt, a Chevy Bolt, a Chevy Cruze, and a Chevy Cruise AV.

    Is anyone at GM in charge of model names talking to anyone else in charge of model names?
