What's New for the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt?

This remarkable Chevy Bolt Electric Vehicle really is like no other on the market at a reasonable price. It competes directly with gas-powered models with its best-in-class driving range, best-in-class horsepower, best-in-class torque, and best-in-class spaciousness. In short, it does everything a gas-powered car can do while saving thousands at the gas pump. That's why it was named Motor Trend Car of the Year.

2018 Bolt Technology and Audio

The value of the Chevy Bolt comes partially from the space in its cabin. It is bigger than some other EVs and hybrids, including the Prius and the Leaf. Better still, its engineers found ways to make the backseat bigger by flattening the floor for more legroom and thinning the front seats to create more legroom. Even up front, engineers found ways to generate more front row knee room. The large greenhouse adds to the airy feel. SUV-like, high-mounted seating helps the driver see the road. In fact, there's almost a panoramic view of visibility due to the large windows. The cargo hold measures 16.9 cubic feet and has a wide-open frame to make it easy to load. A split-fold rear seat lets you add hauling space. LT editions are a high-value package with must-have technologies. The Chevy MyLink screen is a 10.2-inch diagonal touch display. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto provide the connectivity to stream navigation to the screen. The LT's programmable thermostat can regulate the temperature for you. Premier trims help you beat winter by adding two rows of heated seats and a heated steering wheel. It also adds rear USB ports to please your passengers. A Bose audio system adds high quality sound. This edition even has a sub-floor storage compartment for organization and security. Either model can include a Wi-Fi hotspot with help from OnStar.

2018 Chevrolet Bolt FrontThe 2018 Chevrolet Bolt demands respect by providing a 238-mile driving range. Competitors have shorter ranges and far less horsepower. Without a gas motor, the Bolt generates 200 horsepower. This EV generates 266 lb.-ft. of torque. Considering this lightweight package, that's a lot of power. Although it can be measured for miles per gallon, the EPA has estimated the equivalent. It is rated at 119 mpg equivalent. That means you can travel the entire range for the cost of about two gallons of gas. Chevy uses many techniques to make the power go further. The car has a low center of gravity and an aerodynamic body shape. To manage the power outlay, Chevrolet uses Electronic Precision Shift. During slow-and-go-traffic, the car recaptures energy in a process called brake regeneration. When you do need to charge, a DC Fast Charger can net you 90 miles of range in just thirty minutes. The battery pack is covered for eight years or 100,000 miles.

Chevrolet Bolt - A Safer Ride

2018 Chevrolet Bolt RearSince they started from scratch, engineers had an opportunity to emphasize when they were designing this car. Ten airbags suggest how serious Chevrolet is about protecting its riders. A standard rearview camera is the tip of the iceberg when it comes crash avoidance. Chevy offers an exclusive rear camera mirror system. In your traditional rearview mirror, you touch a button and suddenly get a full view of everything behind yet. In addition, you can have a low-speed automatic braking system watches for pedestrians and stopping traffic. A lane change assist, a blind spot monitor and a lane departure alert help the driver avoid sideswiping another car.
