The First Electric Car For The Masses


General Motors just beat Tesla Motors in the race to produce a truly affordable electric vehicle with triple-digit range. Moments ago, GM CEO Mary Barra unveiled the all-electric Chevrolet Bolt at CES, providing the first look at what may be the most significant vehicle the automaker has built in decades. The little EV may look like just another five-door compact, but two figures make it an engineering masterstroke: 200 and 30,000. That first number is its range: 200 miles on a fully charged battery.
