Bolt EV Offers 238 Miles of Range

DETROIT – Chevrolet promised to offer the first affordable electric vehicle with 200 miles or more of range and will exceed those expectations when the 2017 Bolt EV goes on sale later this year. With the vehicle’s EPA-estimated range of 238 miles, owners can expect to go beyond their average daily driving needs — with plenty of range to spare — in the 2017 Bolt EV when charging regularly.

“Chevrolet showed the world the production version Bolt EV earlier this year and in a few short months we’ve moved from that vision to a reality,” said GM North America President Alan Batey.

  1. “with plenty of range to spare”

    Sounds nice.

    Just curious, but what’s the mileage on a hot, sultry, rainy night when you need the AC, headlights and windshield wipers on?

    I mean, as long as we’re tossing figures around, that one should also be answered, right?

    1. Sure. I will tell you they are accurate more to miles in these cars. However with HEAT OR AC on it’ll drop that range. Unless they then put the car in eco mode and drive really good.
