2017 Chevy Bolt

If you've been waiting for the opportunity to find the right electric car at the right price, then keep your eyes on Chevrolet's lineup. The upcoming 2017 Chevy Bolt has everything that the modern driver needs: a terrific electric range, a practical price point, and high-tech style that makes every journey exciting. Experience the future of the auto market with this innovative hatchback.

Outperforming the Competition

The 2017 Chevy Bolt was designed to integrate seamlessly into your everyday commute. While many electric vehicles of the past suffered from impractical ranges of less than 100 miles per charge, the Bolt sets a new standard for performance. This overachiever generates up to 238 miles on a single charge, besting even the popular Tesla Model 3's predicted range of 215 miles per charge. And if you're ready to try out this electric beauty, it is expected to hit the dealerships within the year. If you want the Tesla Model 3, you'll have to wait until 2017.

Electric Range

The Chevy Bolt is expected to achieve an impressive 238 miles per charge, but what does that mean for your life? Given that the average daily commute is a mere 40 miles, drivers could potentially wait for days before thinking about fueling up.

Additionally, the regenerative braking system reuses energy that is normally lost during gas-powered commutes. Pull the Regen on Demand paddle to slow down the vehicle, shifting the saved energy into the lithium-ion battery for future use. One Pedal Driving is another innovation that allows drivers to accelerate and decelerate on the same pedal. Together, these systems help the Bolt utilize every bit of fuel for an even more efficient experience.

Easy Charging

When it's time for a recharge, the 2017 Chevy Bolt makes things simple. Homeowners can get the available 240-volt charging unit installed on the property for total convenience. This system delivers 25 miles of range in just one hour. You can even customize the Bolt's settings to charge at specified times. If you're in a rush, take advantage of the DC Fast Charging station. This system delivers an estimated 90 miles of range in only 30 minutes.

Intuitive Driving Experience

Not only is the Bolt tech-savvy, but each model also features a comfortable cabin that is packed with conveniences:

  • Optional 4G LTE Wi-Fi
  • A 10.2-inch diagonal multi-functional screen
  • Apple CarPlay and Android Auto
