There is just half a year left to the Chevrolet Bolt EV's introduction to the U.S.

On the occasion, Bloomberg recently had chance to talk with GM's CEO Mary Barra about the first affordable 200-mile all-electric car to hit the market.

According to Barra, the range and affordability will meet the needs of a broad group of consumers, and thus makes Bolt EV special.

"It will be the first affordable fully electric car with a range of more than 200 miles. GM launches the Bolt EV later this year. In an exclusive interview with Bloomberg TV's David Westin, CEO Mary Barra spoke about tackling drivers' "range anxiety" and taking on Tesla."
