    Chevrolet Bolt EV starts at $29,995 U.S. with federal tax credits

    Chevrolet’s new Bolt EV is a vehicle that Wired has dubbed “Tesla-walloping,” and its pricing seems like a direct shot at Tesla’s lineup, including the forthcoming Model 3, which is set to be the dedicated electric carmaker’s more “affordable” option. Chevrolet revealed specific pricing and trim details for the base model Bolt EV LT, which begins… Read More

    Chevy cuts 4G LTE data price in half

    In the past two years, more than 2 million Chevrolet cars with 4G LTE data connections have been sold, and, according to GM, those connections have chewed through 3 million gigabytes of data. Now each of those bytes will cost half as much, because Chevrolet is dropping the price of its data by 50 percent. Where a 1 GB per month plan used to cost $20, now it’s $10.

  • A Few Quick Laps In Chevy’s New $30K All-Electric Vehicle, The Bolt

    This morning at CES, Chevrolet unveiled an all-new electric vehicle called the Bolt (not to be confused with their hybrid, the Volt.) For around $30K after rebates, Chevy is promising a range of around 200 miles per nine-hour charge and a pretty sweet suite of technology.

  • GM To Continue Electrification With A New Cadillac?

    Last year at the NAIAS in Detroit, Cadillac introduced the Converj concept, a vehicle based on the Chevrolet Volt. Most of it’s electronics were shared from the Volt, including GM’s new Voltec power system.  While it was definitely a cool looking car and was much talked about at the auto show, nothing came of it—most concept cars rarely make it further then the tenure of a… Read More

  • $41,000 For The Chevy Volt? Sounds Right To Me.

    I honestly laid in bed last night thinking about the Chevy Volt’s $41k price tag. Seriously. When I got the press release shortly before it crossed the wire yesterday, the price seemed about right for a first-gen Voltec vehicle. The $350 lease program looked even better. I was already totally sold on the Volt after driving an early mule over a year ago and the price tag didn’t… Read More

    If you’re forgetting where you parked your car with enough regularity that you long for some sort of device that would make noise to help you find it, you’ll probably be happy to pony up for a new Chevy with a KITTY LOC8TOR pre-installed. See what they did with the number eight there? KITTY stands for Key Innovation That Talks To You and "has the added feature of being able… Read More
