Chevrolet Bolt: Business case hinges on legislation

Holden has taken steps to bring a fully-electric car to the Australian market, but the business case depends on government support. In August 2017, Holden lodged a trademark application to protect the use of Chevrolet Bolt. The company then transported a vehicle to Australia for local testing – and display at the Holden Dream Cruise in 2017. The Chevrolet Bolt is an all-electric car capable of travelling 320km between charges, and retails for around US$30,000 in its home market.

This week Holden hosts Australian media for a first drive of the ZB Commodore across a variety of roads and tracks at Holden's Lang Lang proving ground, but company boss, Mark Bernhard, wants fans to reserve judgement until they've had a go themselves.
