A new generation of drivers have entered the market and the list of requirements for their first car is growing. Chevrolet answers those requirements with the 2017 Bolt EV. A completely electric car promoting a longer range is finally the answer to consumers looking for a cleaner ride. With an affordable price tag including a generous federal tax credit, there is much to like about this car as a new driver.
The Bolt EV offers an estimated 238 miles per charge, enough for a daily commute for days without charge. Special energy converting features give the driver other options to slowing or breaking while increasing the Bolt EV’s range. Once it comes time to charge, you have the option to plug in at home instead of a charging station.
Don’t let its size fool you, the Bolt EV has the potential to carry more than a carpool. Its compact yet spacious design gives the driver flexibility, a must for all millennials. It has the best of both worlds; the handling of a sedan, but the reliability of an SUV. If an unexpected move is on the horizon, the Bolt EV can handle the load and take you home.
Chevrolet does not skimp out on the technological details with this model, making sure to provide the driver with more access to the car’s interactive capabilities. You can easily check the car’s energy level, how far you’ll be able to drive on the most recent charge, and even entertainment information within the driver cluster. For the rest of the car, a large touch screen displays climate control, navigation, rear camera view, and has the capability to go into a split screen and give previews of multiple settings.
Like other models, the Bolt EV can be paired with the myChevrolet App to allow remote controlled features from your smartphone. From starting the car to monitoring the current charge of your car, this capability further showcases the relationship between millennials and their smartphones. After a quick pairing via USB or Bluetooth, the driver can access Wi-Fi, control their phonebook, select their smartphone’s music from the infotainment’s controls.
Eliminating a driver’s carbon footprint and allowing for customization past the point of familiarity are why the Bolt EV is the electric car for this era. It’s a car that keeps up with the changing days of a new generation of drivers. Chevrolet finally makes a long range electric car a reality and soon a standard in world of auto. Bolt EV.
