What's under the hood of this Chevrolet Bolt EV?
As our hardcore readership is well aware, we love to share videos on InsideEVs. We're well aware that the visual stimulation may appeal to much of the internet-surfing audience. However, some people just don't have time to deal with long videos. Instead, they'd rather read an article. Many of these deep-dive cost analysis shares are super lengthy. But, this recent share via FT Transact regarding the Chevrolet Bolt EV is short and sweet. You get the best of all worlds: the most important details and a concise article with a short video attached.
If you follow the segment, you've likely heard of UBS. It's a Swiss investment bank that tends to perform such tear downs to get a better idea of what costs are involved. In fact, there was a bit of a situation fairly recently between Sandy Munro and UBS, of which we never really received final details. At any rate, this short video share talks about the Chevrolet Bolt EV and its overall value based on a cost analysis piece-by-piece and/or part-by-part.
UBS notes that EVs are becoming increasingly less expensive to produce and will eventually cost less to build and to buy than comparable ICE cars. Check out the video and let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
