UPDATE: Chevrolet Menlo Electric Crossover Revealed

•, By: Gustavo Henrique Ruffo

The Chevrolet Bolt SUV is currently still under development, but that does not prevent GM from having other electric crossovers to play with. At least in China.

***UPDATE: GM contacted us to say the automaker has not announced the Bolt EUV or any other EUV in regards to this release or in connection with the Menlo EV.

While the Bolt EUV has not yet shown up for American customers, perhaps we can have a good idea of what it will be like with these official images of the Chevrolet Menlo.

The new electric crossover appeared ahead of its official presentation thanks to pictures delivered to the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, part of a declaration information GM has to elaborate to the authorities in China.

Expected to have an official presentation at the Chengdu Auto Show in September, the Menlo is based on the Buick Velite 6 EV, which was revealed back in June. Unlike its Buick cousin, the Menlo looks a lot like the FNR-X concept. Or like the new-generation Chevrolet Tracker presented for China. Additionally, the previous Velite 5 was basically the Chevy Volt, so the Velite to Chevrolet connection is strong.
