Super Cruisin’ With The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt EUV

Friday, March 5th, 2021

The Chevrolet Bolt is a beloved electric hatchback, favored for its miniature body and eco-friendly abilities. When it was first introduced into the market, it received a list of automotive awards and accolades, so it was no surprise with its success that it would eventually bring on an SUV variant. The cleverly named Bolt EUV (electric utility vehicle) enhances the Bolt hatchback’s abilities of practicality and usefulness, and with the growing popularity of large compacts, it’s certainly something we can see today’s consumers getting excited about.

For the sake of clarity, it’s important to note that the EUV won’t be drastically different from the regular Bolt. In fact, both models are featured on GM’s BEV2 platform (for small electric vehicles). Simply put, the EUV may be considered a bit too small and restricted to even be considered an official compact crossover. 

The styling is a mix between the Bolt and Chevrolet’s larger Blazer, as well as a bit of its Trailblazer. What truly gives it some distinction is the availability hands-free Super Cruise driver-assistance package. Besides being gifted to a few Launch Edition models, this feature is exclusive to the EUV high-tier Premier trim as an option and also involves three years with OnStar service.

As far as the drive goes, the highway drive with the Super Cruise system was relatively impressive, as the car stayed put in its lane and covered lots of road without the need of human interaction. Technologies like a camera focused on the driver and infrared sensors help keep you focused on what’s ahead because if you find yourself in La La Land, it’s a sure thing that the system will start to beep.

It’s been estimated that the EUV should be able to zoom at 60 mph in about 7.0 seconds, but it is certain that the engine’s low-end pull is quite stone, as it easily gets the motor going away from stoplights and zoom past all of the grannies on the highway. The regenerative braking system is also a plus, as this recaptures the energy that the car gained through momentum, and saves it for future use. The braking system ultimately saves money and reduces overall brake usage.

As far as interior technologies are concerned there is a new 8.0-inch infotainment display located in the gauge cluster and a central 10.2-inch touchscreen, which are both easy to use. The car comes with standard wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, as well as a charging pad. Available features include heated and ventilated front seats, as well as heated rear seats. Safety features include forward-collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and lane-departure warning, while rear cross-traffic alert, a surround-view camera system, and adaptive cruise control can serve as an option.

Distance-wise, GM has estimated that its SUV variant ranges at 250 miles, while is a setback of 9 miles from its hatchback. When plugged into a 240-volt outlet, the battery should take about seven hours to fully recharge the EUV. Either you choose the Bolt or EUV, you’ll get standard DC fast-charging capability, with the 55-kW maximum charge rate able to “refuel” the EUV with up to 95 miles of range in 30 minutes.

One of the final enticements the automaker seems to offer for the EUV, its affordable price. The base price of the larger vehicle is $33,995, (plus destination fee), which is lower than the starting price of the 2020 Bolt at $37,495, (plus destination fee).

The Chevy Bolt EUV Skips Out On Automated Lane Change

Monday, February 22nd, 2021

 

The Chevy Bolt EUV Bring On The Automated Lane Change

The distinction that the Bolt EUV (otherwise known as Chevy’s electric SUV) makes in its particular model is that it will not encompass the Automated Lane Change technology that has been recently presented to General Motors three Cadillac models: the 2021 luxury Cadillac CT4 and 2021 Cadillac CT5 sedans and the latest 2021 Cadillac Escalade full-size luxury SUV. 

The Automated Lane Change enables the vehicle to automatically change lanes, thus signaling an progression of the standard Super Cruise system. Vehicles that offer this system have a fairly simple task, with the driver just having to either tap or fully latch the turn signal level in order to start the process. Doing this allows the system to look for a convenient opening in the indicated lane, and once it’s safe to do so, move in that particular spot. In the same way with all Super Cruise functions, this is only workable on compatible highways, of which potential buyers will be happy to know that there are around about 200,000 miles in North America and Canada, as well as 180,000 miles in China.

At the digitized reveal for the vehicle, the Super Cruise Assistant Program Engineering Manager, Jeff Dinakar, explained why Automated Lane Change would not be accessible on the Bolt EUV, saying “This requires VIP.”

To explain, VIP expresses itself as a Vehicle Intelligent Platform, which is also known as the GM Global B electronic architecture. Think of it as the electronic nervous system of the vehicle, progressively, Global B has been replacing the previous Global A in General Motors cars, with some dating back all the way to the 1990s, and then some.

While it’s certain that the brand new Bolt EUV is set to go on sale this summer, technologically and mechanically, it is comparable to Chevrolet’s other fully-electric and smaller crossover, the Bolt EV, which is in the midst its own facelift for the 2022 model year (though will not have Super Cruise available). The electric architecture is essentially Global A, but with a slight update that develops it in Global B’s direction without really turning it into a “proper” Global B vehicle. As a result, the electric system would not be a suitable partner for the Bolt EUV to be matched with Automated Lane Change.

It is for this reason that the Bolt EUV’s Super Cruise system will be comparable to the one that we first saw in the 2018 Cadillac CT6. This tells the driver that it is safe to take their hands off in particular instances. As stated by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Automated Vehicles for Safety document, though the Super Cruise system is a driver assistance system, that doesn’t make it fully autonomous.

In fact, the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) describes it as a Level 2 system, going as far to describe it as such: “Vehicle has combined automated functions, like acceleration and steering, but the driver must remain engaged with the driving task and monitor the environment at all times.”

Chevrolet Invites The Magic In As They Team Up With Disney World

Monday, February 8th, 2021

 

Chevrolet and Disney Partnership

Sunday, February 14th, Cupid returns to strike his arrow on lovebirds around the world, it’s also the day that Chevrolet will unveil its newest 2022 Bolt electric vehicles in a marketing campaign with their long-running collaboration with Walt Disney World. This unveiling involves the automaker highlighting the 2022 Bolt hatchback and EUV (a.k.a electric SUV).

General Motors (GM), the parent company of Chevrolet, has been a long-serving sponsor at Walt Disney World and has also been a sponsor of the transportation pavilion since 1982, the year of Epcot’s opening. In 1966, World of Motion closed and GM continued its sponsorship of the replacement attraction, Test Track. Since then, the company replaced its branding with Chevrolet.

A similar marketing strategy is being used by a competing automaker, Honda, specifically for its Odyssey vehicle. Honda’s campaign centers on their sponsored Autopia go-kart attraction. This scheme is comparable to the Bolt, especially with Disney-themed references like pixie dust, Disney magic, and emphasis on families.

However, GM still has a stronger standing with Disney. The Mickey Mouse company worked with the automaker in the 1940s for videos on safety. On top of this, when Disney launched its on-site rideshare program, Minnie Vans, Chevrolet SUVs were used. 

For the announcement of the upcoming Bolt, Chevrolet stated, “Realizing the dream of an all-electric future will require more than just technology — it’s about having the desire, imagination and ingenuity to build a better tomorrow.”

As proven by early 2017, this “better tomorrow” concept is encompassed with autonomous vehicles. During this time, L.A. Times reported that Disney was planning on launching a pilot program that used self-driving shuttles. Jim Hill later shared on a podcast episode that the program would initially launch for cast members to journey backstage and then eventually transition to guests across the resort.

At the current moment, autonomous shuttles drive around town centers and suburban areas like Orlando’s Lake Nona, it is that location where there is talk of Disney scouting out an office space. Then, one of the forerunners of autonomous vehicles, Cruise, is undergoing testing in San Francisco. 

Honda is also pushing for their own expansion, as they are also investing in the startup. Additional investors in Cruise involve Microsoft, starting in 2019. Azure, Microsoft’s cloud and edge computing program is also included with both Disney and the Cruise platform. 

Owing to a Super Cruise subscription service, the 2022 Bolt is said to hold similar technologies, with Chevy calling it the “industry’s first true hands-free driver assistance system”.

Cutting Down The Costs On Carbon

Another project by Disney includes working to decrease its carbon footprint, which certainly explains the push for electric vehicles. One of the ways it does this is by tracking its marks by division, with a carbon tax used to counteract its impact. Though it’s been active for the last decade, it’s recently received criticism with its major transportation fleet, encompassing more than 300 buses for its parks and resorts. However, it is worth noting that they’ve embraced solar farms, renewable energy, and additional carbon-cutting initiatives.

On the brighter side of things, it is possible these autonomous vehicles will lower labor costs. In fact, in 2019 Cruise obtained Dashride, an automated dispatching service for rideshare fleets.

GM aims to offer around 20 electric vehicles in the States within the next four years. The 2022 Chevrolet Bolt will make its debut on Lover’s Day, Feb. 14, with the model, as well as the EUV, available to consumers later this year.

The 2022 Chevy Bolt Might Be The More Sleek and Sexier Younger Sister

Monday, October 26th, 2020

 

Spy Shots Of The 2022 Chevy Bolt and EUV

The Chevrolet company is in the process of acquiring an extensive number of brand new electric vehicles after development. In particular, one is a meticulously refashioned version of the Bolt, which will be allied with an SUV variant called the Bolt EUV. For the most part, the herculean model will be rebadged and serve as a comparable form of a Buick Velite, which is currently being sold in China. Meanwhile, the miniature Bolt will be the main successor of the original 2016 Bolt model. Recently, car blogs like Motor1 were able to sneak some spy shots of the upcoming environmentally-conscious car.

Photos taken from the Australian car site, CarExpert, show a prototype version of the Bolt resting in a near desolate parking lot. According to Motor 1, this particular shot, as well as other succeeding shots that were shown on their site were taken by journalist Derek Fung.

Hinged upon what has been revealed by the company thus far, the sustainable hatchback appears to have a sleeker look than the current Bolt. At this point, one shouldn’t make vast assumptions, but it looks like the front end might have gained much inspiration from the latest Blazer, which also appears to encompass split headlights. The car’s masquerade layer still hides the front fascia,  however, we do notice that two rows of lights are hiding underneath.

It is not yet known what changes will be made in the Bolt’s cabin, but we do know that the present generation of the model is charged by an electric motor producing 201 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque. Between two changes, the range has an EPA rating of 258 miles (416 kilometers).

For comparison purposes, it’s worth noting that the Chinese Buick Velite is a bit lackluster to the current Bolt, as it only has 174 horsepower. 

By sometime next year, we should expect to hear more information about the Bolt’s dramatic entrance. It is expected that its debut will be around the second half of 2021, and will also hit dealerships by late next year or early 2022.

More Details About The Bolt

  • Both the Bolt EV and EUV will remain on General Motor’s BEV2 platform, therefore, they will keep the same battery and charging equipment rather than the brand’s new Ultium batteries. 
  • Some known updates in the interior include a more upscale design, as well as, improvements regarding seating, the infotainment system, and the push-button gear selector.
  • The EUV will have a few available upgrades such as a sunroof and the cornerstone Super Cruise, which is a high-tech control system that allows drivers to take his or her hands off the wheel on the freeway and so far, this has only been available in Cadillacs.

Miami Lakes Automall

If you just can’t wait for the upcoming Bolt model, don’t fret! You can enjoy an incredibly low price of under just $30,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV LT at Miami Lakes Chevrolet.

Chevrolet Shows Us That It’s Time To Charge Forward In The Bolt EV’s New Teaser Trailer

Tuesday, October 6th, 2020

 

The most recent 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV is in its fourth model year for its particular segment, behind the upcoming 2021 Bolt EV scheduled to be released for 2021, at a later date. At the present time, Chevrolet is busy promoting the fully-electric hatchback in their latest advertisement video titled “It’s Time To Charge Forward.”

In the 85-second video, the viewer can see the Bolt EV flaunting a few of its features such as charging the car battery at home and on the go, EPA estimated distance per charge (259 miles), regenerative braking, driving stats, onboard Wi-Fi, cargo room, app technologies, and acceleration specs.

By the end of the video, it’s clear just what Chevrolet wants us to know, that “Our Future Is Electric.” Likewise, GM Authority has previously made their message known several times of their push for transitioning into more electrified vehicles. In fact, the company is planning to introduce 20 new electric models by 2023. This encompasses the upcoming Chevy Bolt EUV, a.k.a “Electric Utility Vehicle”, that is in the same family tree as the regular Bolt EV in the realm of mechanics. However, with the compact five-door crossover SUV type of body style, it offers better functionality and more family-friendly space. Towards the end of the small flick, it shows a near-silhouette profile teaser image of the 2022 Chevy Bolt EUV.

 

 

In terms of the engine, Chevy’s SUV spin-off will be powered by the same BEV2 (second-generation Battery Electric Vehicle architecture) as the first-generation model for the Bolt EV.

Other nifty updates to look forward to on the EUV include a reworked interior that has been rumored to look posher rather than plastic and…basic. The automaker also wants to address numerous concerns about the current Bolt, like improving the seats, having an infotainment system that is more state-of-the-art, and including a push-button gear selector.

Regarding the newest member of the Chevrolet hatchback family, it has a more advanced powertrain for its 2021 model, by having an additional 21 miles for range for the maximum estimated 259 miles between plug-ins.

One thing that is certain, is that we can expect a great deal of content coming from General Motors EV sooner rather than later, but in the meantime…Miami Lakes Automall has an extensive and diverse list of Chevrolet vehicles ranging from a variety of different price ranges, trims, and styles. 

For those who are specifically interested in the new Bolt model, please remember that it’s not even set to release until the summer of next year but for now, shoppers can enjoy an incredibly low price of about just $40,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV Premier. It also includes features like heated front and rear seats, heated steering wheel, blind-spot monitoring, and the slick Rear Camera Mirror. It also comes with a leather-wrapped steering wheel, fancier wheels, and roof-mounted side rails.

General Motors Gives Us An Electrifying Tease With The 2021 Chevy Bolt

Friday, September 4th, 2020

General Motors is allowing the public a sneak preview of its two new Chevy Bolt versions, which has been the brand’s big-ticket all-electric model since its release in 2017. A restyled and even larger Bolt EV were given initial announcements at GM’s “EV Day” by March of this year and are set to enter production in the summer of 2021.

The glimpse that we get of these vehicles is very minimal, which is understandable seeing how it was offered during the automaker’s recent virtual fleet solutions summit meeting. It displayed a silhouette of the upcoming Bolt, which then transformed into the Bolt EUV.

The remodeled Bolt has a look that is much sportier, as well as new seats, adaptive cruise control, and other minute changes. Moreover, the company pushed up the range in this year’s Bolt from 238 miles to 259, though no additional is expected in the new design.

The Bolt EUV will have a longer wheelbase than the regular Bolt EV and should be attractive to shoppers who prefer a more SUV type of style rather than a hatchback. In the video, the EUV looks longer than the EUV but doesn’t appear any taller. It seems as though this dynamic duo is perfect for appealing to buyers who have different lifestyles, as drivers who don’t have large families might prefer the simple Bolt EV model.

The pair will still remain on GM’s BEV2 platform, which is set apart from the new “Ultium” battery pack revealed during the company’s EV Day. The Cadillac Lyriq, which is the upcoming electric crossover as well as the electric GMC Hummer will be the first of GM’s latest models to be constructed on their new electric blueprinting. Similarly, the Bolt EV and EUV were originally set to go into production by the end of this year but were delayed until the following year due to the coronavirus pandemic. 

The automaker also confirmed the 2021 fraternal twins will be the first vehicles besides the Cadillac lineup to have Super Cruise. This system makes use of extremely calculated and precise 3D mapping data, GPS, and an assortment of sensors to keep the vehicle in its lane, meanwhile, facial recognition makes sure that the driver has his or her eyes on the road and is ready to take back control. Soon enough, it will also be able to change lanes by driver’s simply turning their signal and will able to tack on more functions once the software is readied and made available

Miami Lakes Chevrolet

When the 2021 Bolt Ev and EUV finally do arrive, be sure to make your purchase at Miami Lakes Automall! We sell a wide range of Chevrolet vehicles that are suitable for different needs.

2022 Chevrolet Bolt SUV: What To Expect

Thursday, May 14th, 2020

 

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV was quite a showstopper, as it was MotorTrends Car of the Year, unfortunately winning accolades doesn’t always guarantee authority in sales, especially since Tesla, who has become one of the most notable companies in their efforts of producing electric vehicles, released a car with a similar price. However, the Bolt EV is making a comeback for 2022 and is showing all of us that it’s not one to be dismissed. The refined SUV will get a revitalized look and will also bring a sister variant appearing as an oddly named Bolt “EUV” electric crossover.

The name “EUV” otherwise known as “Electric Utility Vehicle” seems like a relatively new term that Chevy is playing around with, which is creative in some ways but may take a while to gain some real traction. Since the EUV is longer than its companion EV, it might entice some shoppers who are looking for an EV that has a regular SUV style rather than one of a tall hatchback. The styling which is sure to be somewhat in agreement with the company’s signature style of design will also have a look that is glossier and sexier, and also potentially fixes the current Bolt’s shortcomings.

Formed upon the Bolt’s BEV2 structure, the EUV is elongated 3 inches between the wheels for more space in the interior with an overall 5 to 6 inches. Since the Bolt is already high in height, it’s likely that the EUV won’t grow any taller, although, the more upright type of structure will contribute to its SUV look. Also, the longer wheelbase will likely make space for a larger battery rather than the current standard 66-kW-hr pack. Ideally, the larger Bolt battery pack would enhance the range past the smaller model’s 259 miles, but since there are no intentions of adding a motor to the rear axle, there’s a strong probability that it will only come as a front-wheel-drive.

Since the Bolt EV and EUV will stay on the lineup of the BEV2, they will proceed to use the same battery and charging equipment instead of General Motors’ new Ultium batteries. This suggests that they will still be compatible with the DC fast charging, however, it may take a bit longer for these models to power up than the more developed Ultium batteries and will also have different capacity and range. On the flip side, by using the current technology, this will permit the EUV to come onto the market next year while the BEV3-established models and their batteries won’t be ready for another year.

The Bolt EUV will also include a variety of updates that are also being implemented in the standard Bolt like a refashioned interior said to be more upscale than…plastic-like. The company is already attending to numerous concerns regarding its current Bolt, involving improved seats, a more advanced infotainment system, and a push-button gear selector.

The new EUV will also include a few optional upgrades that the regular Bolt will not get, such as a sunroof and the highlighting Super Cruise, which is an extremely intricate cruise control system that allows drivers to take his or her hands off the wheel on the freeway and so far, this has only been available in Cadillacs.

Moreover, the 2020 Bolt EV has a starting price of roughly $37,000, (plus destination fee) and about $42,000, (plus destination fee) with its upgraded Premier trim. It’s likely that the 2022 version will come in with the starting price of the more upgraded Bolt variant.

The new Bolt model is set to go on sale in mid-2021 but in the meantime, shoppers can enjoy an incredibly low price of under just $30,000, (plus destination fee) for the 2020 Bolt EV LT at Miami Lakes Chevrolet. If you are interested in this vehicle or other models in our possession, please take a look at our new online car inventory and chat with an online representative for more assistance.

2020 Chevrolet Bolt Improves With New Technology

Thursday, February 13th, 2020
2020 Chevy Bolt Miami Lakes Automall

The new decade has arrived with impending changes bound to affect the automotive landscape. Changes include greater technology like what is found in the new 2020 Chevrolet Bolt. The latest Chevy EV nows joins a crowded field with the introduction of the Kia Niro EV, Hyundai Kona, Telsa Model 3 and Nissan Leaf, among others. The truth remains, few compare to what Chevy has included in the new 2020 Bolt. The range for the Bolt is now 259 miles, which is more than any of the vehicles listed above. The Bolt recharges at a superior rate that includes 4 mph with a 120V plug, in just 10 hours using a 240V home charger. The Leaf Plus takes longer at 11.5 hours. The Chevrolet Bolt pulls ahead with the ability to charge up to 100 miles in just half an hour. 

Improvement From Within For the 2020 Chevy Bolt

The acceleration has improved with the Bolt as well with an impressive 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque that is stronger than most gasoline cars on the road today. For those that imagine the Bolt is purely an EV capable of only providing great fuel economy that is wrong as the Bolt proves its quite effective at maintaining its power even when driving over steep hills or passing other vehicles. The Bolt can go from 0 to 60 seconds in 6.3 seconds. An array of standard features include SiriusXM Radio, a keyless start with push-to-start button and LED daytime running lamps, plus LED taillamps, 6-speaker audio system, 6-way manual driver seat and passenger seat with 60/40 split-folding rear seat. Enjoy technology that makes driving more enjoyable with 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities. An available Bose premium 7-speaker audio system and automatic heated steering wheel.

 Accolades and Discount 

The Chevy Bolt was the 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the 2017 North American Car of the Year and Green Car Report Best Car to Buy, among many other awards. The 2020 Chevrolet Bolt looks to be no exception. This is an affordable option for many customers at $36,620 MSRP (Plus destination fee). An 8 year, 100,000-mile warranty is about as strong as they come in the industry. The Federal Tax Credit will provide up to $1,875 in savings through March 31, 2020 on any Bolt EV purchased. 

“The Bolt is not just a great electric vehicle but also a great commuter vehicle in every respect. … Well done, GM. You are now the leader.”

GM Pressing Hard to Get 4-Gen Bolt AV’s On The Road

Monday, December 23rd, 2019

General Motors Petition

In 2018 General Motors revealed the first images of the upcoming GM Cruise AV, a fourth-generation Bolt AV-based-autonomous vehicle. This new self-driving model will be the first of its kind without a steering wheel or petal.

Since then, GM has been petitioning for permission to test new Bolts “without a human driver and without human driver controls.” They’ve requested to permit 2,500 vehicles to run on public roads citing this is meant to advance safety and low-emission technology.

For the past two weeks, top GM executives have discussed the electric hatch as a self-driving platform. According to Reuters, an international news organization, CEO Mary Barra met with US Transportation Secretary Elaine Chao last week in order to discuss getting the 4-Gen AV’s onto the city streets.

 “I expect we’re going to be able to move forward with these petitions soon — as soon as we can. There’s a lot of back and forth between us and the companies. We’re sharing with them thoughts and ideas and concerns. They come back to us with additional information.” Said, James Owens, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) administrator.

Additionally, Owens mentioned that he expects that a decision will be made in 2020. He also said that the primary concern for NHTSA is to make sure any driverless vehicles on public roads are as safe as those driven by people.

GM’s 100-page petition made it more than clear that they mean business; It goes into detail as to how autonomous vehicles will be a huge benefit to the public.

The company wrote “Because human error or behavior leads to 94 percent of vehicle crashes, technology that eliminates the human driver has the potential to save tens of thousands of lives and to avoid or mitigate hundreds of thousands of vehicle crashes every year in the United States alone…Every day in the United States, more than 100 lives are lost in car crashes. Every day of delay in getting autonomous vehicles safely on American roads is a day in which we are losing lives that could be saved.”

GM states that by introducing this program it will gain a wider acceptance to the use of electric and zero-emission vehicles. If the NHTSA permits GM’s request, the company’s deployment plan will include a ride-share program that GM will bring public exposure to. The ride-sharing system would operate in urban areas and users would interact with it by the use of his or her phone.

2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV

Though autonomous vehicles have ways to go, Miami Lakes Automall currently has 2019 electric models starting at $29,000, (plus destination fee) against the retail price of about $43,000.

The highlight of this 2019 EV is its battery back of course! The 60-kWh battery can take the Bolt up to 238 miles. On top of this, just 30 minutes at the DC Fast Charging station will give the vehicle another 90 miles of range. The engine also has 266 lb-ft of torque with a horsepower of about 200.

Those interested in any 2019 Chevy EV models can search our electric vehicle online inventory or call us: (305) 455-3540. Representatives are standing by!

New EV To Be Built Alongside the Chevrolet Bolt

Wednesday, April 3rd, 2019
2019 Bolt Miami Lakes Automall

General Motors has plans to continue pushing the boundaries of electric vehicles. With the addition of Chevy Bolt back in 2016, General Motors took a large step towards providing the public with a fantastic electric car option. The 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year has its latest entry in the 2019 Chevy Bolt, but it’s about to have a new electric model to go alongside it. General Motors released this statement about this upcoming vehicle, which is to be built based on the latest Chevrolet Bolt.

“The new Chevrolet electric vehicle is in addition to the existing Chevrolet Bolt EV, further advancing GM’s commitment to an all-electric future. It will be designed and engineered off an advanced version of the current award-winning Bolt EV architecture” – Statement from GM

The latest unnamed Chevrolet electric vehicle is set to be made in Michigan. Let’s get into why the new 2019 Chevrolet Bolt has been improved and is a fantastic choice for drivers to consider. We’re sure you’ll agree.

The Best Electric Vehicle Made By GM Today

There are few vehicles that offer an EPA-estimated 238 miles from a single charge, while that might change in the future for GM, there is only one vehicle that holds that wonderful claim currently. The new 2019 Chevrolet Bolt begins at $36,620 MSRP (plus destination fee) and that figure is lowered down to $36,620 MSRP (plus destination fee). The current federal tax credit is set to lower down to $1,875 after September 30th, 2019. Perks of driving the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt is more than the tax credit for the purchase and its remarkable mile range. Though owners will love how fast the vehicle charges up to 25 miles per hour of charge with the 240-volt/32-AMP charging unit, owners will gain an incredible interior to enjoy as well.

What Owners Are Sure To Love With the New Chevy Bolt

What helps make the 2019 Bolt so attractive is not only its electric range but its five-star National Highway Traffic Safety Administration rating. There is also that nice 10.2-inch diagonal touchscreen and its vast wealth of information stored in the infotainment center. Owners can check the efficiency history of the vehicle.

The Bolt EV is entirely an electronic-vehicle that has an electric battery that will charge in 9.3 hours at 220-volt outlet charging. But, it can charge even faster than that. How fast? The available DC charge nets a quick charge getting owners nearly 90 miles in a mere half an hour. Not paying for gas will help Bolt owners save more than $5,000 in five years of driving for the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt. We’re wondering how General Motors will craft their upcoming EV, but time will tell.
