This week, GM plans to reveal the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt at the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS) in Detroit, adding a serious competitor to Tesla’s growing list.
The Bolt will supposedly have a 200-mile range before it needs recharging, making it one of the most powerful electric vehicles yet.
According to some sources, the Chevy Bolt would be priced somewhere between $30,000 and $35,000, but with a $7,500 federal tax credit thanks to the vehicle’s environmental friendliness.
It’s no surprise that Chevrolet would put out such a model, as electric cars and hybrids have become more popular than ever. Additionally, 2014 was an incredibly strong year for most aspects of the automotive industry, offering extra cash for new endeavors.

Work with GM to go green with composting in the GM Renaissance Center!
General Motors not only makes the effort to go green when it comes to its vehicles—it has also brought the green philosophy home. The GM Global Headquarters, which already strives to send no waste to landfills, has recently announced that the building that houses many of the complex’s restaurants, the GM Renaissance Center, has taken the American carmaker’s green initiative one step further by composting any leftover food scraps in urban farms throughout Detroit.
This new movement towards composting came about through a partnership with a local startup, Detroit Dirt, which collects coffee grounds and fruit and vegetable pieces to mix with herbivore manure. It all began when Andiamo Riverfront, a 280-seat Italian restaurant within the Renaissance Center, began composting. Since April, this restaurant alone has already generated 12,000 pounds of food scraps. Along with Andiamo Riverfront, other restaurants that are now composting include Joe Muer Seafood, Presto Gourmet Deli, Coach Insignia, Coffee Beanery, and Potbelly Sandwich Works.
While we might not have the gardens to help you compost, we here at Hutch Chevrolet still have plenty of eco-friendly vehicle options to choose from. Make sure you stop in to our dealership today to go on a test drive!
