Chevrolet has announced the production-ready 2017 Bolt will be introduced on Wednesday in Las Vegas during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

The Bolt is about to join the Volt in Chevy’s lineup of alternatively-powered models as the BMW i3 rival will be unveiled tomorrow at CES before going on sale as a 2017 model year. We have already seen most of the exterior design courtesy of a few spy pics taken about a month ago during a Palm Springs photo shoot. Chances are the interior will have very much in common with the Volt and we already have an idea about how it will look like judging by the Bolt concept from last year’s North American International Auto Show.

Chevy promises the 2017 Bolt will carry a starting price of less than $30,000 after full federal tax credits and in return you’ll get a “game-changing, long-range electric vehicle.” Speaking of range, the battery pack will last for an estimated 200 miles (321 kilometers) and the hardware setup will provide “spirited performance.”

Unlike the BMW i3 which can also be had with a range-extending gasoline engine, Chevy will sell the 2017 Bolt exclusively as an electric vehicle. Production will take place in Michigan and will be sold throughout United States starting late 2016 / early 2017.
