The Chevrolet Bolt EV continues to be well on its way to production status, as the manufacturing of the 200+ mile electric vehicle from GM kicks off in October at the company's Orion, Michigan plant, with deliveries to get underway by year's end.

However, before that can happen there is a "pre-production" or "production-intent" run of cars to validate the build, and sort out any unforeseen bugs, or even to make some last minute additions.

Thankfully, InsideEVs reader Sean F while driving on the streets of San Francisco on Sunday caught the Bolt EV (complete with manufacturer's plates) out for a little joyride.

Actually to be fair, it was his 11 year-old son, Aidan that took the shots of the Bolt like a real pro (so points to Aidan on that...and of course to his dad for sending them in to us).

Location of the catch was on Van Ness (101) as it turns down Lombard.

Sean tells us that "the driver and passengers clearly (are) having a great time in the Bolt!", while noting that "the finish on the Bolt was amazing - beautiful lines and gorgeous detail. Compact, sleek. "

Our thanks to Sean and his son for the great looks!
