AutoComplete: Bolt EV could cost Chevrolet $9,000 for each one soldChrysler's Pacifica Hybrid earns top MPG honors, and Honda prices out the 2017 CR-V.
Here's what's making news on Road Show. EVs are expensive, but Chevrolet might have a real loss leader on its hands. Bloomberg reports that Chevrolet could lose up to $9000 on every Bolt EV it sells as it prepares for our inevitable electrified future. A mixture of zero emissions mandates and higher battery development costs mean the cars are expensive now but as the market grows those losses should hopefully fade away. Chrysler was hoping the Pacifica Hybrid would be rated at 80 miles per gallon equivalent. According to EPA estimates it's even better than that, sporting a rating of 84 MPGE. The [UNKNOWN] also upped the electric range from 30 miles to 33, and total driving range is up to 566 miles. That makes it the most fuel efficient minivan ever, which is one hell of a feather for Chrysler's cap. The Honda CR-V is all new for 2017. But, it's pricing is rather familiar. Including destination a based CR-V will set up back 24,925 dollars. Which is only 200 dollars more expensive that it was before. The mid tier EX packs a new engine and a host of new tech, but it's only $580 more expensive than before, coming in at $27,575. The top tiered CRV Touring is priced at $33,275. We just published our review of the CRV and we think it's a tough act to beat, so give it a read. Find more on these stories over at TheRoadShow.com and we'll talk to you tomorrow.
