Enjoy the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt’s tablet-like screen display. Using the standard interactive 10.2-inch diagonal touchscreen display, you can access vehicle information in real time or use a variety of apps. Split screen displays and expanded views allow you to easily see vehicle information while navigating, listen to music, access your contacts, and more.
With the display, you can see vital vehicle information in real time. Customize the kinds of information you want to see easily so you get the information you want without being overwhelmed by data you don’t necessarily care about. The screen will break down the percent of the energy you use while driving, including climate controls and battery conditioning. If you’re interested, see how your total energy is being used in a bar graph that shows your energy efficiency in five-mile intervals for the previous 50 miles. Finally, see your energy usage score, which is an index based on factors that influence energy consumption, like driving habits, terrain, climate control settings, and exterior temperature.
The Bolt also offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, With Apple CarPlay™, you can easily listen to music, get directions, make calls, and more. Likewise, with Android Auto™, connect your smartphone to the console for easy app selections, calendar access, music, and maps. Plus, you don’t have to drain your data with the Bolt’s available built-in W-Fi connectivity.
The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt uses a 60 kWh lithium-ion battery that is rich in nickel and is built on the success of the Chevrolet Volt. This battery technology offers 200 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque, which is pretty respectable for an electric car. Get an EPA-estimated 119 MPG combined with the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt.
Although some people might believe that electric vehicles can’t go very far on a single charge, the Chevrolet Bolt proves the naysayers wrong with its innovative electric engine. On a single charge, the Chevrolet Bolt has a range of about 238 miles, which is about the same range as a traditional car would get on a full tank of gas before needing to stop and fuel up. Easily find charging stations with charging apps on your smartphone, and you’re road trip-ready.
Conserve battery power with features like Regen On Demand™ and one-pedal driving. Regen On Demand™ allows you to slow down by simply pulling on a paddle on the steering wheel without ever using the brake. This process converts the energy into electricity and sends it back into the battery. Likewise, driving in Low mode at any speed allows you to slow down or even come to a complete stop by simply lifting your foot off the accelerator. Though not using the brake conserves more battery power, you should always use the brake if you need to stop quickly.
Charging is simple when it comes to the Chevrolet Bolt, and you can charge the battery as much or as little as you want. Simply plug in the Bolt to the available 240-volt/32-amp home charging station at night, and your car will be fully charged by the next morning. Or, with location-based charging, delay charging your Bolt until you’re away from home to save on home energy costs. You’ll get about 25 miles per hour of charge time using the available home charging station. Although you can also use a standard 120-volt outlet, it is ultimately more efficient to use the available home charging station. The charging station will charge the Bolt five times faster than regular outlets, and you won’t have to worry about setting it up, as it will be professionally installed. Plus, it comes with a 25-foot charging cord and can be installed either indoors or outdoors, so no worries if you don’t have access to an enclosed garage. However, if you really want to amp up your charging efficiency, use available DC fast charging, getting you 90 miles per 30 minutes of charge. The Bolt comes with a ChargePoint card in the glove box, and, after an easy activation, you can use thousands of public charging areas nationwide.
Never want for storage with the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt’s roomy interior. The rear seats fold down easily to give you a whopping 56.6 cubic feet of storage space. There is also an available false cargo floor to keep your items organized or to hide away anything you might want to keep away from prying eyes.
The Chevrolet Bolt will comfortably seat five people, providing plenty of space around the shoulders, head, and legs. Plus, the position of the battery provides a flat floor, allowing for increased room and an easier entrance and exit for you and your passengers. You’ll never feel cramped in a Bolt.
The front console is multipurpose, providing a sliding armrest and storage bins. If that’s not enough, the generous cupholders and the available charging station behind the shifter will have you feeling right at home.
Express your sense of style with 2018 Chevrolet Bolt’s eight different color possibilities. Whether you like muted neutrals or pops of color, Chevrolet has a color palette that is perfect for your individual sense of style.
Turn heads with the beautifully sculpted body and strong wheel arches, giving your crossover the presence it deserves on the road. Plus, with the enclosed body, you will benefit from a more aerodynamic design. Unlike traditional combustion engines, electric engines do not require airflow from the underbody. The enclosed underbody will, therefore, give you a smoother, more streamlined ride.
