The Chevrolet Bolt EV has underpinned the brand’s battery electric vehicle aspirations since 2017, when it replaced the Volt plug-in hybrid. A second-generation Bolt EV arrived last year with a new design and – most notably – a nearly $7,000 price cut.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The only news is the addition of an optional lighted charge port.
Chevrolet offers the Bolt EV in a single LT trim level powered by a single electric motor driving the front wheels.
The Bolt EV’s standard features include 17-inch alloy wheels, auto on/off LED headlights, passive keyless entry, and heated side mirrors. Inside are heated front seats with driver power-adjustments, six-speaker audio, automatic A/C, a 10.2-inch touchscreen, a heated steering wheel, auto-dimming mirror, and wireless phone integration.
Also included is a suite of driver assist features: forward collision mitigation with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, lane keep assist, rear cross-traffic alert, and automatic high beams.
Chevrolet’s energy consumption estimates for the Bolt EV are 1.8/2.2 Le/100 km (city/highway).
You can shop the Bolt EV against the Kia Soul EV, Nissan Leaf, and Hyundai Ioniq 5.
