2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV
Your daily routine. Mastered.
From a beautifully sculpted exterior to its impressive performance, spacious interior and advanced technologies, Bolt EV has completely reinvented what an electric vehicle can be. Want proof? Bolt EV was named Motor Trend's 2017 Car of the Year.
Some days are long. Your range is too.
Not sure how far EPA-estimated 238 miles will get you? Think about it this way: The average daily commute is only about 40 miles round trip. So you'll have more than enough range to get through an average day &DASH; and you could go up to three or four days, or even more, without needing to plug in.
All Eyes Over Here
A crossover design from the inside out, Bolt EV is a natural head turner, with beautifully sculpted proportions and eye-catching details. You may have to look again before you even notice it's an all-electric vehicle.
Charging is as easy as plugging in your cell phone.
The great thing about Bolt EV is you can top off your battery as much or as little as you like. Or you can simply plug in at night and by the morning it's charged up and ready to go. Without thinking, plugging in could become a part of your daily routine and you don't have to leave your garage. How convenient.
With just a simple pull of the paddle on your steering wheel, you're able to slow down without using the actual brake pedal. This helps convert energy into more electricity and then transfers it back to the battery. Which means the braking power is in your hands.
Instead of losing energy when slowing down, this feature helps you transfer energy to the battery. It works like this: When driving in Low mode at any speed, you can slow down ‐ or even come to a complete stop ‐ by simply lifting your foot off the accelerator. This means you may use your brakes less and help increase your range. You should always use your brake pedal if you need to stop immediately.
It All Starts With the Battery
A nickel-rich lithium-ion battery technology makes it possible to enjoy Bolt EV for a very long time. Here's how: The battery chemistry enhances heat resistance, allowing the battery to tolerate heat before using power to cool it down. And an active thermal management system helps manage the battery temperature in extremely hot and cold weather conditions. Plus, the battery pack has an energy capacity of 60 kWh ‐ which offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge. Bolt EV offers the peace of mind of a 100,000 mile or 8-year warranty, whichever comes first ‐ so be rest assured you can get to where you need to go.
Many Safety Features, Only One You
Helping protect you is an important job. And helping you prevent collisions is a big part of that. Bolt EV has the technology available to help make your driving safer, including a number of ingenious radar- and camera-based systems for protection on all sides.
As a Chevy first, this available feature uses four strategically placed cameras to create a virtual bird's-eye view of the vehicle. While maneuvering at low speed, all camera viewpoints seamlessly merge to transmit a clear side-by-side digital image to the large 10.2-inch diagonal screen, helping you to see both the area behind and around you. Just by looking at one screen, you get twice the view.
