Chevrolet Bolt EV Pros
Chevrolet Bolt EV Highlights
The Chevrolet Bolt EV is part of a new generation of electric and hybrid cars that are becoming more and more commonplace in the U.S. The Bolt boasts futuristic lines and modest exterior dimensions; however, it makes excellent use of interior space with seating for five plus luggage. The base Bolt EV comes well equipped with features like keyless entry, HID headlamps, a Programmable Charge Control System, Chevy MyLink Radio, and Android Auto/Apple CarPlay, dual USB ports, even GM's Teen Driver Assist mode and 10 air bags. Propulsion comes from an advanced electric drivetrain that pairs wonderfully with the AC synchronous motor with a huge 60-kWh lithium-ion battery pack that carries an 8-year/100,000-mile warranty. The system produces 200 horsepower and 266 lb-feet of torque and can propel the Bolt EV from 0-60 mph in under 7 seconds. In addition to its standard 110V charging system, Bolt EV owners can add a 240V home-power setup that cuts charging time down to about nine hours. One more charger option is the DC Fast Charging capability that can add 90 miles of range in 30 minutes. When upgrading to the Premier package, standard features include unique 17-inch Ultra Bright Machined aluminum wheels, outside side mirror indicators, roof rails, Silver center stack trim, leather seats, front and rear heated seats, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist and rear Camera Mirror, ambient light pipes, and surround vision. A 4-camera system that creates a bird's-eye view of the vehicle and its immediate surroundings. Standard safety features include 10 airbags, Stabilitrak electronic stability control system, LED daytime running lights, OnStar, and advanced technologies such as low-speed forward automatic braking, lane keep assist with departure warning, forward collision alert, front pedestrian braking and more.
