The coronavirus, which originates in China and spreads to almost the whole world, continues to affect the business world negatively. General Motors spokesperson announced that the updated Bolt EV release date has been postponed to 2021.
The coronavirus, which infects about 850 thousand people worldwide and causes more than 40 thousand people to die, continues to affect the economy and the business world negatively. While many different sectors were affected from virus epidemics to sports and technology, one of the sectors most affected was the automotive sector.
Megan Soule, a spokesman for US-based automaker General Motors, told Electreck that they had postponed the updated Bolt EV's release date to 2021 due to the situation in the business world. The output of the vehicle will remain connected to the calendar during the year.

This updated version of Standard Bolt is thought to have a more sporty design, more comfortable seats, wider angled front cameras for adaptive cruise control, a better infotainment system and many more.
General Motors, one of the largest automakers in the world, temporarily closed its factories in North America to protect against a coronavirus epidemic. The company does not plan to restart production until it is safe to return to work. The closure of factories for a few weeks or more can have a devastating effect on operations and can spread steadily throughout the industry.
Among the companies affected by the epidemic in the automotive industry, there is not only General Motors. Electric car maker Tesla was forced to close the Fremont factory due to a quarantine decision in California. Lucid Motors, another electric car manufacturer, delayed the release of the Air EV vehicle.
Not only General Motors, many other automotive manufacturers have been affected by this pandemic virus. Hopefully we will get better very soon.
