Making this thread as not to clutter up the Tesla in Australia thread. Also somewhere to discuss things like the Leaf or Volt etc. Or even other types of electric vehicles, like golf carts Well, one of my hopes came true, not how I imagined anyway. We now have and Australian designed and built EV for a major auto maker... The Chevy Bolt was designed and made in Port Melbourne by Holden. Of course it won't be manufactured here because that side of the company is closing down in two years. This is supposed to be their Tesla Model III competition, more 'high tech' touch screen instead of buttons etc, but who knows, it is only a concept and not the main focus for GM. All the promo images were taken from a rooftop carpark next to the Holden plant with Melbourne's skyline in the background. Of course I'd hoped for Tesla or some other company to come and build (or assemble) EVs in some of those Auto factories in Victoria which will be vacant in three years. At least this is a step I suppose.
