Chevy says it will scrap ‘Polaris’ minivan as it ramps up production of the Chevy Bolt 2 sedan

The new Volt will be available this summer for $24,900, and the Bolt 2 will start at $36,000, according to an auto industry report.
It’s a sharp increase for the Volt, which had been selling for $23,800 in August before the electric carmaker raised prices to $26,000 in December.
It’s the most affordable electric car in the U.S. and one of the few to get a full-size roof and battery pack.
The Volt is expected to start making its debut in 2019, when a larger sedan will follow it.
The Bolt 2 is expected in 2020.
The Bolt 2’s styling was inspired by the Chevy Volt, a mid-size sedan that’s seen significant production increases in the last few years.

A car industry survey found that nearly one-third of Americans buy an electric car and more than one-fifth of Americans are likely to buy one by 2020.
That compares with about 3 percent in 2016 and about 2 percent in 2017.
Some analysts have speculated that the Volt is the most popular electric car, with a market share of 10 percent or more, because the new electric cars will likely be offered for cheaper.
