GMs game changer has indeed changed the game. Wayne Gerdes – CleanMPG – Sept. 13, 2016 2017 Chevrolet Bolt – An estimated $35k to start not including all the tax and tax credit deals is small on the outside, big on the inside, technology ladened and will offer owners an EPA estimated 238 miles of all-electric range (AER). That’s Huge!!! From the release, Chevrolet promised to offer the first affordable electric vehicle with 200 miles or more of range and with this detail, they have easily succeeded. Or at least set the new high bar for everyone else to match. Meaning under 100-mile range BEVs just became NEVs. The 2017 Bolt EV goes on sale later this year with an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles and I would not doubt 400 miles is well within its roundhouse. With an expected MSRP below $37,500 – I sure hope that means $35k and not $37,499 – before available federal tax credit of up to $7,500 and state tax credits ranging from 0 to over $4,000 USD. Range to spare, internal utility, advanced infotainment and safety make the Bolt EV a great daily/weekly commuter. When the Bolt EV arrives at select Chevrolet dealerships later this year, the brand will also offer the Volt PHEV-53 and 47/46 mpg city/highway rated Malibu Hybrid. Life just got a lot more interesting from behind the wheel of a Chevrolet.
