The Chevrolet Bolt concept will be heading into production in late 2016, with sales beginning in 2017. But there is the question of whether or not the 'Bolt' name will go on the production model or not. The name is confusing as it sounds similar to the Chevrolet Volt.
"Some people think it's confusing. "People are having some fun with it. It is generating awareness, which is good. It's so conversational," said Alan Batey, president of GM North America to the Detroit Free Press.
Batey did say that there is a debate going on General Motors of whether to keep the Bolt name or go with something else.
"We're still in the decision phase. It could go either way," said Batey.
Whether or not the Bolt name changes, Batey said there will be a clear difference between the Bolt and Volt.
