Maven, General Motors’ personal mobility brand, has ordered 250 more Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicles for carsharing tests, according to a report by Wards Auto.

These Bolt vehicles will be added to the 150 vehicles currently deployed in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Scottsdale, Ariz., Detroit, and 13 other U.S. cities, according to the report.

Rachel Bhattacharya, GM’s director-commercial mobility and AV fleet operations, made this announcement at the Center for Automotive Research’s Management Briefing Seminars.

GM chose the Bolt because of its 238-mile range and it seats five passengers, says the report.
