With the debut of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt, a new era of the electric vehicle (EV) has begun. While other automakers continue to develop costly EVs that are priced out of range for the average car buyer, Chevrolet has unveiled an EV in the Bolt that offers a 238-mile range at a price that is right around the average new car price in America. With its superior range compared to other EVs in its affordable price range, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is a smart buy for drivers considering their first electric vehicle. How many miles do you drive in a day? If it is well below 238 miles on average, then Chevrolet's 2017 Bolt is a cost-effective option when you are looking to drive a new car.
This all-electric car may be affordable and practical with its low starting price and 238-mile range, but it is also a blast to drive, thanks to its 266 lb-ft of torque and small dimensions. This EV hatchback can sprint to 60 mph from a standstill in as little as 6.5 seconds! From its Regen on Demand and Electric Precison Shifting to its multiple charging modes, the new Bolt has plenty of high-tech tricks that make it the EV to drive in 2017.
To say that the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is one of the most advanced automobiles on the road today would be a true statement, thanks not only to its high-tech, long-range electric powertrain, but also due to its technology-packed interior. The high-tech cabin of the new Chevrolet Bolt features two large screens that display vital vehicle information, including battery life and more. The standard 10.2-inch center display is tablet-like in its appearance and use, as you interact with it via touch and swipe motions. There is also a large, driver information center screen in the dash that is highly configurable and customizable, including various visual modes. Another reason the 2017 Bolt is fun to drive is its Bluetooth-enabled infotainment system that is compatible with Apply CarPlay and Android Auto for streaming your playlists and more. Like other Chevrolet models, the new Bolt is available with an OnStar built-in 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, which allows up to seven devices to be connected simultaneously. How is that for keeping you and your passengers connected while on the go?
