Chevy has released two teaser photos of the 2017 Bolt electric vehicle, which is currently undergoing testing. The 2017 Bolt was previewed in concept form at the 2015 Detroit Auto Show and will finally give Tesla a rival with its estimated 200 mile driving range and $30,000 starting price.

Although Chevy has only released camouflaged photos of the 2017 Bolt, it’s clear that the production version will remain pretty close to the concept that debuted earlier this year. The Bolt is expected to get a face that will be inspired by the Volt, while its small footprint will make it the perfect vehicle for urban centers.

Chevy has released all the official specs for the 2017 Bolt, but its new electric drivetrain will have a driving range of at least 200 miles between charges. Production is expected to kick off by late 2016, which means the Bolt will most likely arrive before the highly anticipated Tesla Model 3.
