GM Chair and CEO Mary Barra held a quarterly earnings call with investors and announced a next-generation Bolt will be forthcoming. The new Bolt will “deliver great affordability, range and technology.”

“Our customers love today’s Bolt. It has been delivering record sales and some of the highest customer satisfaction and loyalty scores in the industry. It’s also an important source of conquest sales for the company and for Chevrolet.” –Mary Barra, GM Chair and CEO

“We will keep the momentum going by delivering a new Bolt…and we will execute it more quickly compared to an all-new program with significantly lower engineering expense and capital investment by updating the vehicle with Ultium and Ultifi technologies and by applying our ‘winning with simplicity’ discipline,” she continued.

The Bolt will build on Ultium and Ultifi technologies and will follow the electric vehcles already launched or lauching from Chevrolet, including the Silverado EV, Blazer EV, and Equinox EV. GM says that sales of the current Bolt EV and Bolt EUV in the first half of 2023 have been the strongest to date.
