General Motors is stripping out the Bolt EV in order to offer a cheaper version with more cargo space to commercial users such as fleet operators. It is an “incomplete” EV of sorts with no backseats, benefiting delivery services for example.
The Chevrolet Bolt Incomplete will be manufactured in Orion, Michigan. Not only the backseats will be missing but any airbags as well apart from those for the driver and one passenger.
What the costs will be for the slimmed down Bolt is not yet known. Orders are being accepted in the States however, and roll-out is expected to begin this year.
