The Chevrolet Bolt is a compact hatchback with an all-electric powertrain. Introduced in 2017, it was a follow-up to the Volt plug-in hybrid that introduced the brand’s drivers to EV driving. Chevrolet added more driving range for 2020; there are no notable changes for 2021.
Chevrolet offers the Bolt in LT and Premier trim levels. Both use the same electric drive motor and a single-speed front-wheel drive transmission.
LT trim’s exterior wears 17-inch alloy wheels, auto on/off HID headlights, heated/power-adjustable side mirrors, body-colour door handles, LED taillights and daytime running lights, and remote engine start.
Inside, there’s a six-speaker stereo, automatic climate control, a heated steering wheel, a 10.2-inch infotainment display, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, cruise control, power windows and locks, keyless entry, cloth upholstery, and heated front seats.
Safety-wise, LT buyers get tire pressure monitoring.
Premier adds a seven-speaker Bose stereo, USB charging ports, surround-view cameras, heated rear seats, blind spot monitoring, lane change alert, ambient lighting, a rear camera mirror, rear cross traffic alert, rear park assist, leather seating, and wireless smartphone charging.
A driver confidence 2 package adds forward collision alert with automatic braking, lane keep assist, lane departure warning, automatic high beams, and a following distance indicator.
A lesser driver confidence pack for LT trim brings rear park assist, blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and lane change alert.
Chevrolet’s energy consumption ratings for the Bolt are 1.9/2.2 Le/100 km (city/highway). Maximum driving range on a full charge of the battery is an estimated 417 km.
