2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Review

Overview
“This is one of the best-packaged small cars in the world.” That’s how Motor Trend described the Chevrolet Bolt EV when they named it their car of the year—before the first one had even been sold. Available in two levels of trim LT and Premier the Bolt EV is turning the automotive world on its ear. Are you ready for life without gas stations? To use phrases like “one-pedal driving ” “miles per gallon equivalent ” and “energy usage score?” To pay less than a nickel per mile for fuel? Then you’re ready for the Bolt EV. What makes the Bolt EV such a game-changer? Two things: range and price. It’s an affordable fully electric 200-mile EV. And it’s fun to drive. The perfect combination of range utility and style the Bolt EV will change the way you think about electric cars. With a variety of interior and exterior colors and option packages and accessories to choose from there’s a Bolt EV that’s waiting just for you. The Chevrolet Bolt EV. It’s every reason to drive electric.
Technology
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is a technological wonder and not just because it’s an affordable all-electric vehicle with a range of more than 200 miles. The interactive—and standard—10.2-inch-diagonal tablet-like display makes it easy to view real-time vehicle information. Navigate and retrieve your music contacts and more with split-screens and expanded views. Plus night and day modes provide enhanced visibility. Add Chevrolet MyLink Apple CarPlay Android Auto—the Bolt EV even comes with its own available 4G LTE WiFi hotspot! The Chevrolet Bolt EV. It’s every reason to drive electric.
Safety
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is a technological wonder and not just because it’s an affordable all-electric vehicle with a range of more than 200 miles. The Bolt EV also has an array of available passive and active safety systems to help make your driving safer including ten airbags StabiliTrak electronic stability control and a number of available radar- and camera-based warning systems. And if the worst should still happen OnStar is there to send help. Prevent. Protect. Respond. The Bolt EV. It’s every reason to drive electric.
Performance
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is making the world sit up and take notice of things like regenerative braking and liquid-cooled lithium-ion batteries. Why? It’s all in the numbers. First up is 238 which is how far a Bolt EV can travel on a single charge. Next is 6.5. That’s how quickly a Bolt EV gets to 60 miles an hour. How about 200 and 266? Those are the horsepower and torque ratings of the Bolt EV’s electric motor. The Chevrolet Bolt EV. It’s every reason to drive electric.
