The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV is a car that is wonderfully and perfectly shaped. With a price range that begins at $29,995, it represents an amazing opportunity for the common consumer. This is a car with the potential of going 238 miles on a 60 kWh battery. Another spectacular detail of this car is the 266 lb.-ft. of torque and 200 horsepower produced by its electric motor.
For a car the size of the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, you have to agree that’s quite an amount of torque. Although, it is noteworthy to mention that at 3,580 pounds, the Chevy Bolt EV significantly outweighs your regular hatchback, with the car's battery alone almost weighing 1,000 pounds. Chevrolet has done a remarkable job balancing the car by ensuring the weight is evenly distributed to the four sides of the vehicle, which in turn makes the car well-balanced on the road.
If you are one of those intrigued by trending technology, then we’re glad to inform you that this car is loaded with very cool features:
Heated Seat Control
The car comes with a heated seat control for both the driver and passenger. The seats have buttons which are easily noticeable, and every one of the buttons serves a particular purpose when clicked on.
The vehicle features a mobile ability to start remotely. So, there is no need to worry about the weather wherever you may find yourself - the remote can schedule or adjust HVAC temperature without the range of the car being reduced. You can also view the status of the total current charge of the vehicle using the same app.
The Bolt's interior design is an absolute stunner, with a unique choice of material and a great layout. The backs of the front seats are very flat to create more leg space, even for passengers with long legs. And the space between the front seats and the dashboard makes it convenient even for a driver who is 6’ 2” to drive with more than comfortable sitting for those in the back.
The new self-driving Chevy Bolt EV competition/project
The competition is organized by General Motors (GM) with eight schools being selected to participate. The goal of the competition is for the eight selected schools to build and design self-driving Chevy Bolt EVs of their own in three years. Upon completion, the cars will compete in an urban testing course. The selected schools for the competition are: Michigan Tech, University of Toronto, Virginia Tech, Texas A&M, North Carolina A&T, University of Michigan, Kettering University, and University of Waterloo.
It’s clear that the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV electric car is a must for the energy-efficient consumer - with features that are second to none, a spacious and unique interior design, an attractive external build and a price range even the average buyer will find friendly, this vehicle is truly a dream come true.
