The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt is one of the first EV models to actually allow for a full day of driving. You can charge up and take on your day, all day.
For several years, the thought of an EV was cute and somewhat humorous. Most electric vehicles were built for those who were city dwellers only and offered a short range that took several hours to recharge. The Chevrolet Bolt EV has come along to change this and offer us the range we need for a full day of driving, even if the commute is a long one, and make it easier for us to enjoy the benefits of driving a car that’s able to use electricity instead of gasoline for the drive.
Leading the Electric Vehicle Market
While the Tesla brand garners headlines and the Nissan Leaf is the most popular EV on the market, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is the one that can truly lead the way. This is an affordable car that brings you the comfort and drive you want along with the ability to experience a driving range of up to 238 miles from a single charge. No other EV in this price range is able to give you the range of the Bolt EV, which makes this car the one that you’re going to want to enjoy when you need to drive every day and you want to avoid the gas stations. This one is definitely at the top of the fuel efficiency list, not only among Chevy’s other fuel-friendly models, like the Volt or the Spark, but it’s leading the way in the entire EV class.
Fast Charging and Upgraded Qualities
Install a 240-volt charging unit in your home and you can charge the Bolt EV in only ten hours, which equates to about 25 miles per hour of charge. If you have a shorter commute, you might be able to avoid charging the car every day, which can make it easier and more efficient for you. For the 2019 model year, this car adds three new colors and the Tire Fill Alert which is now standard. The LT model is now offered with an optional Driver Convenience II package.
Which Trim is Right for You
The Included Equipment in the Bolt
There are several power assistance features offered to make the Bolt the right Chevy vehicle for you. These include a tilt/telescoping multifunction steering wheel, keyless entry, push-button starting, a programmable Charge Control system, the Chevy MyLink Radio, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, Sirius XM satellite radio, Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, two USB ports, the Tire Fill Alert, Teen Driver technology, and ten airbags. The Premier model adds leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, heated front seats, an auto-dimming rear camera mirror, blind spot monitoring, lane change alerts, rear parking assist, and rear cross traffic alerts.
Choose a Few Options for the Drive
The Chevrolet Bolt EV gives you some great features to add to either the LT or Premier trim. You can have the Driver Convenience II Package and enjoy forward automatic braking, forward collision alerts, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, and IntelliBeam automatic high beam assist. The Premier trim can be enjoyed with the Infotainment Package which adds a Bose premium audio system, wireless phone charging, and two rear USB ports. Both models can give you the DC Fast Charging capability you need to be able to charge up the Bolt even faster.
Power for the Drive
The Chevrolet Bolt makes use of an AC synchronous electric motor which is powered by a 60 kWh lithium-ion battery pack. This battery pack offers you an eight-year/100,000 mile warranty and provides 200 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque through the motor. The estimated range of the car on a full charge is 238 miles, but if you need a bit more range when you travel, you can add ninety miles of range in only thirty minutes by using the DC Fast Charging system.
Get Your Bolt and Go Green
There’s no denying that cars and trucks contribute greatly to the pollution of the atmosphere. In order to reduce your contribution to the deterioration of the environment, you need to drive a vehicle that runs on electricity which offers zero emissions. Until now, it’s been difficult to make this trade-off, but the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV is an electric vehicle that gives you the range you need for your drive. Stop by and see your nearby Chevrolet dealership today and let this become the perfect small vehicle for you to have an excellent ride on the roads you travel every day.
