The Chevy Bolt EV is GM’s first long-range all-electric vehicle. It’s a “compact crossover” utility vehicle with 238 miles of range and a starting price of $37,500 before incentives.

GM started producing the Bolt in October 2016 and the vehicle should make it to dealerships not long after in markets with ZEV mandates first, like California. Full US rollout should finish by mid 2017.
