2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV | Baierl Budget Cars | Wexford, PA


Way to go GM! Give us the first mass-market electric car! With the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV there is real hope that people in the real world will buy a fully electric car. Go ahead and charge up for a new classic mile per charge range at 238 miles. This assumes you are using the 60 KWH battery pack. This is the largest to be used in a non-exotic electric car so far.


Think about all the green minded commuters who can truly consider this as a viable transport option. The Bolt EV is a rival to the Nissan Leaf and far more affordable than the BMW i3. This compact hatchback has credible room for 5 people and their gear. Its sporty style and special amenities offer interesting competition among more costly conventional vehicles.


I have been waiting for this car. The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV tops all of the electric vehicles I have seen on the market as partial electric cars, like the Prius, began to be accepted in mainstream markets. I am impressed with the 238 mile range, the decent driving dynamics and reasonable affordability. If I were commuting regularly at this time, I would surely take this electric car for a test drive and check my budget. The approximate price range for the western PA region is around $36,000. In truth, there remains ample competition among similar vehicles and compact hybrids and some gasoline fueled hatchbacks that can effectively meet my basic commuting needs for less cost.


Battery Pack


The Bolt EV is so special because it has a brand new super efficient battery pack developed along with LG Chem. It has a gigantic 60-kWh capacity which enables the 238 EPA per charge range rating. This detail is enough for the Bolt EV to be truly realistic for many consumers. This 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is the latest addition to the Chevy lineup. Its specialized electric power platform gives the 5 door compact hatchback an edge in the compact market, plus its capabilities on the road as the first fully electric compact car are extraordinary.


Special Features


The Bolt EV has a sporty suspension which lends itself to feeling really fun on the road.  Let's look closely. The battery pack equals more than one quarter of the car's weight. Because it is located in a low area of the Bolt, it helps maintain balance and drops the center of gravity. That positioning improves the performance of the specialized Michelin Energy Saver A/S tires.


Another remarkable and specialized feature is One Pedal Driving which improves energy recovery and allows you to stop the Bolt EV without using the brake, under certain conditions. Just lift your foot off the accelerator.  I do not understand a lot of the electrical procedures but I am sure that the folks at Baierl Automotive are all up to speed on the latest.
