Green Car of the Year

"This takes battery power into the mainstream. This is the transition year. Green technology is no longer for early adopters." – Ron Cogan, publisher of Green Car Journal

If you were worried about buying an EV because you didn’t think you’d be able to drive far enough, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt puts your mind at east with a total drive range of a class-leading 238 miles.

Motor Trend Car of the Year

“It’s not quite correct to say the Bolt EV drive just like a regular small hatchback, because, fundamentally, it drives better than most small hatchbacks.”

There’s no questioning the viability and attractiveness of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV based on its impressive fuel-saving technology, but it’s also noteworthy in terms of what it can do on the road. Due to the balance weight ratio created by keeping the battery under the floor, this hatch can handle smoothly and tightly. On top of that, it has a total output of 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque, which helps it move to 60 mph in under 7 seconds.
