Shop new Chevrolet Bolt EV listings: https://goo.gl/8v61Yc Chevrolet’s 2017 Bolt EV aims to reset expectations in at least two ways. By offering a range of well over 200 miles at a price just under $37,500 – or just under $30K for anyone who qualifies for the full $7,500 tax credit – the Bolt hopes to provide a new benchmark for EV cost-effectiveness. And by driving very, very much like a gas vehicle, it also hopes to prove EVs don’t have to reveal their “alternative” nature by providing a radically different driving experience. The Bolt EV’s instrumentation is distinctive. Its dashboard shows speed, range, and efficiency information clearly, but it’s fully digital and looks very different from that in most cars. And its 10.2-inch infotainment screen offers more data on the electric powertrain and supports Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which is a good thing, because the Bolt does not offer navigation. And buyers will definitely want a 240-volt home charging station, because without it, fully replenishing the battery will take a long time.

Range anxiety is one of the biggest reasons that many shoppers wouldn’t consider an affordable electric car. It’s the fear that, with only a few dozen miles of driving possible, you might run out of juice before you reach home and get stranded.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV, however, puts that argument on its face by offering an EPA driving range of 238 miles. That’s not the farthest range of any electric car – Tesla offers longer ranges – but the Bolt is far more affordable than any Model S or Model X variant.
The Bolt also has a spacious hatchback design, a good number of available features, and drives pretty much like an equivalent gasoline-powered car. So on paper, the Chevy Bolt EV looks like a serious contender in the electric-car space. But battery ratings and sticker prices don’t tell the whole story, so watch our latest Why Buy? video review to see whether the Bolt could be your next everyday commuter car.
Motor: Single Permanent Magnet Drive Motor
Output: 200 Horsepower / 266 Pound-Feet
