This is the Chevrolet Bolt, GM's electric car of the future

The rumored Bolt concept car broke cover today in Detroit, Chevrolet's big bet on an all-electric sedan.

The car, a high-roofed hatch, promises "more than" 200 miles on a charge at a price around $30,000 — not far from the market Tesla is looking to go after with its upcoming Model 3. It supports DC fast charging, though GM doesn't say exactly how long it would take to fill it from empty.

Inside, a 10-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of the dashboard — bigger than many of today's interior screens — and leads up a list of high-tech features, including the ability to use a smartphone as your key, integrated ride-sharing management, and self-parking capability. (Both ride-sharing and self-parking were big topics last week at CES, coincidentally.)

There's no word on production, but the Bolt looks pretty close to being ready — and there's little chance that GM would've made it the centerpiece of this morning's announcements if it had no intention of bringing it to the street.
