GM is ending production of its popular line of Bolt EVs, including the Chevy Bolt and the Chevy Bolt EUV.
GM has a controversial history with EVs, with many customers still not forgiving the company for killing off the Chevy Volt. This company is now ending another popular EV, according to TechCrunch. In fact, not only is the Bolt line GM’s most popular EV, but it’s also one of the few affordable options available to consumers.
The company is certainly not abandoning the EV market but pivoting to larger, more expensive models, such as the GMC Hummer and Cadillac Lyriq. Both are based on GM’s Ultium architecture, sporting a new and improved battery design, according to TC.
In the meantime, CEO Mary Barra says the company will retool its Orion, Michigan factory, where the Bolt is currently made, to make the company’s EV trucks. The Bolt phase-out is planned for the end of 2023.
