Michelin readying airless tyres for 2024

Michelin is working with General Motors (GM) on a tyre called the Unique Puncture-proof Tyre System, handily abbreviated to Uptis, which could be ready for production by 2024. At the moment, the Uptis Prototype is being put through its paces in a controlled environment on the Chevrolet Bolt, but the companies will move into the real world later this year.

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.

Pope Francis receives new Opel Ampera-e

An all-electric Opel Ampera-e has been given to Pope Francis as part of the Vatican City's push to eliminate greenhouse gas emissions. The Opel Ampera-e is essentially a Chevrolet Bolt with different grilles and badging. The two cars feature the same drivetrain consisting of a 150kW/360Nm electric motor and a 60kWh lithium-ion battery pack. Based on the NEDC standard, the Ampera-e is said to have a driving range of 520 kilometres.

Chevrolet Bolt EV will tackle US before anywhere else

The all-new Chevrolet Bolt EV is claimed by General Motors as a game changer – a crossover-style electric car with about 320 kilometres of battery range for US$30,000. But as impressive as that sounds, it won’t be available to other world markets for some time, and a right-hand drive version is not on the cards at all.

Chevrolet Bolt and Opel companion EV to begin production in 2016

General Motors will begin production of the Chevrolet Bolt EV as well as a companion Opel model from late 2016, according to a report. Sources have informed Reuters that the company will start producing the Chevrolet Bolt, as well as an as-yet-unnamed Opel derivative, from October 2016 at GM's small-car factory in Orion, a suburb of Detroit. A concept version of the Chevrolet Bolt, which was designed in part by the team at Holden, was unveiled at last month's Detroit motor show.
