2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV Rumors — Brand New Electric Vehicle
There is no official confirmation or any reliable information about the development of the future electric vehicle which will expand the Chevrolet’s lineup, but it’s speculated that the automaker is dedicated to manufacturing the 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV. The current Chevy green lineup is pretty modest for such a big brand. There is the plug-in hybrid Chevy Volt and the Chevy Spark EV, but that won’t be enough for the rising demand. Those two will have yet another addition, the 2017 Chevy Sonic EV. Some sources claim that the upcoming 2017 Sonic EV is going to replace the Spark EV, while some other say that the upcoming all-new EV is going to expand the lineup. The electric car will be an iteration of the Sonic subcompact hatchback and sedan. Equipped with a powertrain which can provide decent performance and driving range, the 2017 Sonic EV might surprise all of us once it hits the market. As we already said, all the known details about this car are based on speculations and rumors, since it’s still very hard to find out anything certain.
Could 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV Have 200-mile Driving Range
What’s certain is the automaker’s clear desire to deliver to the market a solid, efficient and affordable EV with driving range which can satisfy the most of the customers. Reportedly, the 2017 Chevy Sonic EV will be able to travel around 200 miles on a single charge. Of course, this is just an expectation based on some assumptions, but it’s grounded by some official earlier statements.
New Sonic’s Body And Platform
It’s important to say that the upcoming electric vehicle won’t be based on the current Chevrolet Sonic. This model was released for the first time as a 2012 model. The next-generation Sonic will be drastically better, which will provide a good base for the electric vehicle. The latest Gamma platform is going to be the basic architecture for both the gasoline version and the electric vehicle.
2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV Release Expectations
The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV is expected to be released sometime during 2017. Although it’s practically impossible to estimate the exact time frame when the car can be released, some authorities consider that the first units could be available in the first months of 2017.
