General Motors has plans to refresh and update the Chevrolet Bolt EV. The vehicle has been apart of the Chevy lineup for four years. A new wave of electric vehicles is set to come out from GM early in the new decade and the Chevrolet Bolt will be revamped to look sharp and offer the modern amenities that have been recently developed. In the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt, the Bolt actually costs less and offers better fuel efficiency with a driving range of 259 miles, up from 238 miles last year. The Bolt also charges faster than ever before, up 150% faster during the first 30 minutes of charging in colder temperatures than the previous model. 

No Vehicle Has Better Fuel Efficiency

The fuel range for the Bolt is greater than the Hyundai Kona Electric, the Tesla Model 3, the Kia Niro, the Nissan Leaf Plus, and BMW I3. The top of the electric vehicle class is the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV. The engineering team at Chevy worked tirelessly to improve the energy of the cell electrodes in the battery. By improving the cell chemistry, the number of cells is the same, but each one is more energy-dense with an improvement of 6 kWh of energy. The Bolt battery pack is up from 60 kWh to 66 kWh. This increase is detrimental to allowing the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt to become the top EV, which was Chevrolet’s goal to reclaim the top spot. The future of the Chevrolet Bolt looks bright with the Bolt EUV expected to be ready by the 2022 model year. The EUV has a larger wheelbase at 3.0 inches longer than the Bolt. This will provide more room in the backseats and will look more upright and like an SUV with a sunroof. 

More Than Just the Best Fuel Range of Any EV

Upgrades have also come by way of technology upgrades. The Bolt EV has HD Rear Vision and HD Surround Vision Cameras that help to give a full-display rearview mirror/camera. The new pedestrian alert system helps drivers with a noise that goes off in the newly placed speakers in both the front and rear of the vehicle. With high-tech upgrades, lower pricing, the expectation is to see greater numbers from customers. Also, it’s important to keep in mind that the Bolt is also quick with a 0 to 60 mph time of 6.5 seconds. While speaking about the improvements, the plan has been clear about what Chevrolet wanted to do with the Bolt EV.

“The Chevrolet Bolt EV has been changing consumer perceptions of electric vehicles since its launch in 2016. The great range now, even more, is the foundation of the Bolt EV’s success, and when paired with features like one-pedal driving, Regen on Demand and the instant torque of the EV motor, the vehicle delivers an exceptional driving experience. Chevrolet also is helping to encourage EV adoption by providing customers the necessary tools and services to make EV ownership more convenient,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Passenger Car and Crossover Marketing.
