When General Motors unveiled the 200-mile, affordable electric Chevrolet Bolt concept, the automaker made it known that much of the exterior design of the car was completed.  This means that we should expect only a few outside changes when the Bolt goes into production.

With that in mind, we think that SteeringNews.com's rendering of the production Bolt is basically spot on.  See that 2016 Volt-like front grill?  Other changes include some headlight redesigning, some minor front-end tweaking and a move to a metal roof (instead of all glass, as seen on the concept).

SteeringNews.com adds:

"The production version is expected to be nearly identical to the concept and digital artist Shoeb Kalania has depicted his impression of the same in a new rendering (featured image). Changes speculated include a restyled front bumper and grille, slightly bigger headlamps, bigger ORVMs and different LED taillights. The Bolt EV will have support for DC charging and will offer a range of over 200 miles (322 km)."

We expect the Bolt to go into production in Q4 2016 and launch in early 2017 at a price of approximately $30,000 after the federal tax credit.
