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.

What is it like to drive the long-awaited Tesla Model 3 sedan? Director of Vehicle Testing Dan Edmunds shares his thoughts after spending a weekend in our newest long-term test vehicle. Q: How much does the 2017 Tesla Model 3 cost? A: They're not yet building the $35,000 base vehicle with the standard battery. All 2017 Tesla Model 3 sedans have the long-range battery, so they start at $44,000. For the time being, the $5,000 Premium Upgrades package is a mandatory option, so the effective base price of the car is $49,000. This test vehicle was priced at $55,000 because it also has Autopilot ($5,000) and a paint color other than black ($1,000). Delivery and taxes are extra, of course. Q: How far will the 2017 Tesla Model 3 go on a full charge? A: Model 3 sedans built with the long-range battery are officially rated to deliver 310 miles of range. The base model will be rated at 220 miles when it debuts in the near future. Q: How much power does the 2017 Tesla Model 3 have? A: The rear-mounted electric motor produces 258 horsepower. There is no transmission because the Model 3 uses direct drive to power the rear wheels. Q: How quick is the Model 3? A: We have not yet brought our Tesla Model 3 to the track. Complete test results will be coming to Edmunds soon.

A starting price less than $37,500 makes the Bolt an attractive option for electric-vehicle shoppers, especially while the U.S. government’s $7,500 EV tax credit exists. But consider its 238-mile range, spritely performance, and 5-star safety rating from the NHTSA, and the Bolt EV isn’t just a compelling offer, it’s the best deal in the EV segment.
An electric motor pairs with 60 kWh worth of batteries stored under the Bolt’s floor. In total drivers enjoy the equivalent of 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, but the delivery of all that power is completely different from what they’d find in a gas- or diesel-powered car. Managed by a 1-speed transmission, the torque arrives instantly, meaning the Bolt EV can sprint to 60 mph in about 6.5 seconds. Additionally, aggressive regenerative braking means Bolt EV drivers can enjoy 1-pedal driving.
Chevrolet’s 10.2-inch touchscreen runs a unique version of MyLink that, along with supporting Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, allows the driver to view their energy consumption—and what’s using all that energy. Mike Perkins found this feature particularly helpful, but to learn what else Mike liked (and didn’t like) about the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV, read his full review on CarGurus: https://cargur.us/pPC4h
