Chevrolet today began selling the Bolt EV, its long-range electric car that averages nearly 240 miles on a single charge, at its dealerships nationwide.
The Bolt EV has an MSRP of $37,500 before federal tax incentives of up to $7,500 depending on individual tax situations. Standard features include electronic precision shift, a 10.2-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and an eight-year or 100,000 mile battery and propulsion system limited warranty. The top-trim premier model also includes leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, surround vision, rear camera mirror, and other options.
Through Aug. 30, the company has sold 11,670 Bolt EVs this year and 12,249 since the start of sales in December 2016.
Fred Ligouri, a spokesman from Chevrolet, says the Bolt EV has won nearly 40 independent awards, making it the most awarded electric vehicle of the year. Recently, the Insurance Institute of Highway Safety named the vehicle a 2017 Top Safety Pick when equipped with the Driver Confidence II Package.
The Bolt EV’s other titles include: Motor Trend 2017 Car of the Year, North American Car of the Year, and Green Car of the Year by Green Car Journal.
