Long Range Meets Strong Performance

The Bolt is bigger than rivals such as the Nissan Leaf and the Toyota Prius. Rated at 94.4 cubic feet, the cabin has extra kneeroom for front seat passengers due to engineering and design tricks. The second row has extra kneeroom due to thin, sculpted front seats. Legroom is greater thanks to the way the engineers spread the battery pack, creating a flat floor. Driver visibility is good due to the high-mounted driver's seat and the large greenhouse. Big windows and a high roof help the car have an airy feel. The wide-open cargo hold can handle up to 16.9 cubic feet of gear. This large compartment expands with split-folding rear seats. If you want a well-equipped model, the base LT may be all you need. With the 10.2-inch diagonal screen, you can see menus at a glance. Providing the maximum connectivity for most smartphone users, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay let you access dozens of apps. Drivers can stream navigation apps to the screen. With an OnStar subscription, you can get Wifi for your smart devices. If you step up to the Premier edition, you'll find a Bose stereo. Extra features include rear USB ports for your passengers and a sub-floor compartment for security. A heated steering wheel, front heated seats and rear heated seats round out the handsome Premier's package of amenities.

2018 Chevrolet Bolt FrontThe 2018 Chevrolet Bolt can drive for up to 238 miles on a single charge. In thirty minutes, it can be recharged using a DC Fast Charger and drive for 90 more miles. The car is lightweight, and the body has been streamlined for better aerodynamics. A low center of gravity helps it slip through the wind. Energy is never wasted with brake regeneration. This system captures energy during braking and reroutes it into the system. Electronic Precision Shift manages the electric system, controlling when the gears shift. The electric motor kicks out 266 lb.-ft. of torque, a best-in-class rating. Bolt drivers command 200 horsepower, beating competitors by as much as 70 horses. No gasoline is used, and the car is rated at 119 mpg-equivalent. You may do 238 miles of driving for $5, the cost of two gallons of gas. That's remarkable savings every day.

Safety Ratings and Prestige

2018 Chevrolet Bolt RearBuilding the Bolt from the wheels up, its designers made sure it is safe. Proof is in its Top Safety Pick status at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety. Further proof comes from its five-star NHTSA safety rating. Ten airbags provide a real blanket of protection. An OnStar subscription adds automatic emergency notification. A following distance indicator, a forward collision warning and a low-speed autobrake help you stay out of harm's way. To avoid side swipes, there's a lane change assist, a blind spot monitor and a lane departure watch.

Make your way to Reliable Chevrolet and discover the power of the Bolt.
