Car and Driver Says Bolt Leaves Competitors in Dust

By calling the Chevy Bolt “a bigger step forward for autodom” than the Tesla, Car and Driver magazine has proclaimed the little Electric Vehicle (EV) a “powerful and responsive” alternative energy vehicle that also “provides plenty of fun along the way.” Stay in touch with Chapman Chevrolet to be among the first to take a test drive when the new Bolt arrives very soon.

Choose from LT or Premier

Even the base Chevy Bolt LT comes with a number of attractive features, including a 10.2-inch touchscreen that not only displays vital information regarding energy usage, but also is compatible with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to stream music and offer hands-free communication. The LT also offers Proximity-key entry, push-button start and a backup camera. It includes OnStar capability that provides unlimited 4G LTE Wi-Fi at a monthly price. The Premier trim package includes all the features of the LT and adds a rear camera in your rearview mirror, surround vision and a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel. Add the inexpensive Driver Confidence package to either model and you’ll receive blind-spot warning, rear parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alert.

You Can Go for Miles and Miles

With an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles, the new Chevy Bolt offers a solution to range phobia. That’s the fear of running out of power that has hindered sales of electric vehicles in the past. Utilizing regenerative braking, the Bolt gets the best mileage in the stop and go environment of urban driving. Car and Driver tests showed that the Bolt’s MPGe numbers outperformed all other electric vehicles.

Bolt No Slouch on the Highway

Car and Driver says the Bolt is fun to drive, with plenty of power and great handling. “The Bolt will challenge your negative preconceived notions of electric cars,” the reviewer wrote. “It’s fast, responsive, and comfortable, measuring up well against some of our favorite conventional gasoline hatchbacks in terms of driving dynamics.” Expect an instant response when you step on the accelerator with plenty of torque to merge onto freeways and pass large trucks. “Steering is quick and accurate,” the Car and Driver reviewers wrote. The Bolt’s low center of gravity helps eliminate body roll when going around corners.

Plenty of Room to Stretch Out

Although the Chevy Bolt is a compact car, you’ll be surprised by the head and legroom in both the front and back. Five adults can ride comfortably, making this a great choice for the office carpool or ferrying the kids back and forth to school. Check in often with Chapman Chevrolet for the chance to test drive Chevy’s latest technological achievement.
