The all-electric 2017 Chevrolet Bolt it taking away worries of distance and making it much more convenient for consumers to own an electric vehicle!

The vehicle gets an EPA-estimated 238 miles per charge, five times the amount needed for the average daily commute of 40 miles!

nightAvailable later this year, the vehicle will be available in two trim levels, LT and Premier. Compare trim levels here.

“While range is important, we knew Bolt EV owners would want more — more space and more power — and the Bolt EV delivers,” said Bolt EV Chief Engineer Josh Tavel, in a press release. “Our team took special pride in optimizing every aspect of this vehicle, especially its impressive range and ride dynamics.”

The available 240-volt charging unit offers more power than a 120-volt outlet. This higher-voltage system can provide up to an average of 25 miles of range per 1 hour of charge. To replenish the battery from empty to full, it takes about 9.5 hours.

The standard Location-Based Charging feature customizes your charging settings so that the Bolt EV will know when you’re home and will activate according to your preset times. If you’re somewhere else, and the vehicle is plugged in, Bolt EV will know to charge immediately.

Along the way, you can use your OnStar RemoteLink App to find charging stations!

Here are a few techniques that allow you to control when and how you want to channel even more electricity to the battery:

 Allows you to slow down without using the brake pedal while transferring energy back to the battery, and then converts that energy into electricity. It’s not magic. It’s just a simple pull of the Regen on Demand paddle on your steering wheel. And doing just that, helps optimize range. Of course, you must use your brake pedal if you need to stop immediately.

 

 Allows you to speed up and slow down by using the accelerator pedal. It works something like this: Press your foot down to increase speed, just like you normally would. To slow down, just lift your foot off the accelerator pedal. So, instead of losing energy when slowing down, One Pedal Driving helps you generate more energy to the battery. And it’s just one more reason to drive Bolt EV.

The Bolt EV doesn’t skimp on safety. It has 10 air bags, a high-strength steel frame, available OnStar, available front pedestrian braking, available forward collision alert, available side blind zone alert, and available rear cross traffic alert.

Another available feature, Rear Camera Mirror, projects a wide-angle view of the area behind the vehicle in the inside rearview mirror.2017-motor-trend-car-of-the-year
