Some might be surprised that Chevrolet would consider making an all-electric car. This proves times have changed, as people are in demand for hybrid and electric vehicles. Check out these five reasons to take a 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV home.

200-Mile Range

If you don't know much about mileage range for an electric vehicle, we can tell you anything over a 200-mile range is pretty impressive. The Bolt EV boasts a 238-mile range on a full charge. Depending on how much you drive, that can really help for piece of mind, not stressing over having to charge all the time.

Priced Right

The Bolt starts just under $38,000. Keep in mind there is federal tax credit that tops off at $7,500. So if you get all that back, you can step into a Bolt for around $30,000. Couple that with never having to visit a gas station, and you're saving serious bucks.

Nice Drive

For a subcompact car, the Bolt is pretty nimble and handles surprisingly well through turns. The 200 horsepower electric motor does zero to 60 in about 6.5 seconds. If you haven't driven electric before, you're in for a treat when accelerating from a standstill. The 266 lb-ft of torque allows for passing and merging with ease.

Versatility

The Bolt has an impressive hatchback design. That allows for a little more cargo space in the rear of the vehicle when compared to a sedan. There's over 56 cu ft. with the rear seats folded down and a passenger volume of 94.4 cu ft..

Design

The Bolt has a solid stance and attractive styling. Coming on the long standard feature list are LED daytime running lights, heated mirrors and 17-inch alloys. The Premier trim level even has standard roof rails up top. Moving inside, you get touches like leather, heated rear seats, ambient lighting and even the optional 6-speaker Bose sound system.

Autotrader Says

There are many reasons to finally make the jump to an electric car. With zero emissions, the savings are pretty remarkable. If you're ready to go electric, you definitely want to consider the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
