GO READ MY COLUMN HERE! http://autotradr.co/Oversteer The Chevy Bolt has some amazing Tesla-beating numbers: $37,500 base price for 238 miles of range. But inventories are piling up and nobody's buying it. I'm reviewing a 2017 Chevy Bolt to find out why it isn't as cool as the Tesla Model 3. FOLLOW ME!

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.

I spend a week with the all-new 2016 Chevy Volt and put it through everyday life tests. With a great new look, extended range and lower price, this car should be on your list if you've ever considered an EV or Hybrid. This could be the perfect solution for the immediate future.Drive it like an EV but not have to worry if you have an unexpected trip or you forgot to plug it in. Maybe this will give the Tesla Model III a good run.

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
