Production of the Chevrolet Bolt to Increase, Create Jobs

The world is more quickly embracing alternative fuel technologies as we begin to more fully understand the negative effects that gas-powered vehicles can have on our environment. Chevrolet has been at the forefront of the mission to introduce these alternative fuel vehicles to the market with options like the Malibu Hybrid, Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid, and Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle.

In fact, very recently, GM CEO Mary Barra stated that Chevrolet would be increasing production of the Chevrolet Bolt at its Orion Assembly plant near Detroit in order to embrace the future of electric driving. Doing so will create more jobs in the city of Detroit.

In an interview, Barra told CNBC, “I think it’s [adoption of EVs] going to happen more quickly than decades. As more and more people recognize that we have the right range, understand that we have a charging infrastructure so they don’t think you’re going to be stranded, I think you’re going to see EV adoption continue.”

Barra is right: The Bolt in particular has largely reduced range anxiety, as it can go 238 miles on a full charge. GM is also looking to partner with energy industry players to build a greater network of EV charging stations in the US. This is just one of many reasons Chevrolet continues to be among the best automotive brands around.
