Chevy Bolt 2016Chevrolet

General Motors just beat Tesla to the punch.

On Wednesday, the company unveiled the pre-production model of its first affordable, long-range car called the Chevrolet Bolt EV.

The company also confirmed that the vehicle would become available before the end of 2016, beating Tesla's launch of the Model 3, which is slated to go into production in 2016. 

The Bolt will cost around $30,000 after tax incentives, and boasts a range of more than 200 miles on a single charge. While that’s impressive in itself, the vehicle also has a number of other impressive features that make that much more appealing.

We had a chance to test drive the Bolt EV at CES and we took Stuart Norris, the Bolt’s head designer, along for the ride. Norris walked us through some of the car’s best tech and design features.
