There are numerous rumors roaming around the internet lately about the new electric vehicle developed by GMC. Though this hasn’t been confirmed yet, there are some indications that this might be true. The green market is expanding quite rapidly, so such a serious and big auto manufacturer must work on this field and offer richer palette of vehicles. With this being said, let’s us introduce you the new 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV. The new green car will be a derivation of the already known Sonic subcompact hatchback and sedan. Of course, the new EV model will have a slightly different exterior design, which will help it make the difference between two models in not just the powertrain. However, those changes will not be drastic, but they will be sufficient to set these two models apart. As for the powertrain, the new model will come with a decent setup and a satisfactory performance. We do expect that the new model will easily keep the pace with other green vehicles on the market, so it will be a delightful surprise once it is released.

The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV will have a more than satisfactory performance. Though there is not much information released about it yet, there are some rumors about it possible specs. These speculations are based on some earlier announcements made by the manufacturer. According to these rumors, the new Sonic EV will have a driving range of 200 miles, which is great news. Though this hasn’t been confirmed yet, we expect that the new model’s performance will be close to that.
Body And Design
The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV will not be based on the current Chevrolet Sonic design. Instead, it will be based on the next generation of this vehicle. Since the Chevy Sonic was first released in 2012, it was long overdue it received a redesign. The future model will be much better than the current one and it is this very redesign that will be used for the new green variation. The new Sonic EV will use the latest generation of the Gamma platform, which will also underpin the next-gen model with the conventional powertrain.
2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV Release
The 2017 Chevrolet Sonic EV should be released sometime during 2014. Despite the fact that the model’s production still hasn’t been officially announced, we feel quite confident it will happen. Some sources even narrow the release time frame to a few first months of the 2017. As for the price, it is too early to make any assumptions.
