Enjoy the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt’s screen display, which has been designed to resemble a tablet. Using the standard, interactive 10.2-inch diagonal touchscreen display, you can access vehicle information (that’s always kept up to date) or use a variety of apps. Split-screen displays and expanded views allow you to easily view vehicle information at the same time you’re navigating, listening to music, accessing your contacts, or using other functions.
With the display, you can monitor vital vehicle information in real time. Customizing the kinds of information you want to see is easy, so drivers can get the information you want with a few simple buttons without being overwhelmed by data you don’t necessarily care about. The screen will present this data in the form of statistics that will explain how much energy you have used while driving, including use from secondary functions, such as your vehicle’s climate controls and battery conditioning.
If you’re interested, you can also see a visual representation of how your total energy is being put to use in a bar graph that displays your energy efficiency broken into five-mile intervals for the previous 50 miles you’ve traveled. Finally, you can use the Bolt’s touchscreen display to access your energy usage score, which is an index based on factors that influence energy consumption, such as your driving habits, the terrain, climate control settings, and exterior temperature.
The Bolt also offers Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, With Apple CarPlay™, you can easily listen to music, get directions, make calls, and more. Likewise, with Android Auto™, connect your smartphone to the console for easy app selections, calendar access, music, and maps. Plus, you don’t have to drain your data with the Bolt’s available built-in W-Fi connectivity.
The Chevrolet Bolt uses a 60 kWh lithium-ion battery, which is rich in nickel and is built on the success of the Chevrolet Volt. This battery technology offers 200 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque, which is certainly respectable for an electric car. Get an EPA-estimated 119 miles per gallon combined with the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt.
Although some may believe that electric vehicles can’t go very far on a single charge, the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt proves the naysayers wrong with its innovative electric engine. On just one single charge, the Chevrolet Bolt has a range of about 238 miles, about the same distance a traditional car could travel on a full tank of gas before the driver needs to stop and fuel up. Easily find charging stations with charging apps on your smartphone, and you’re roadtrip ready!
Conserve battery power with features like Regen On Demand™ and one-pedal driving. Regen On Demand™ allows Bolt drivers to slow down by simply pulling on a paddle on the steering wheel without ever having to use the brake. This process converts the energy used in stopping back into electricity and recycles it into the battery. Likewise, driving in Low mode at any speed allows you to slow down or even come to a complete stop by lifting your foot off the accelerator.
Charging is simple when it comes to the Chevrolet Bolt, and you can charge the battery as much or as little as you want or have time for. Simply plug in the Bolt to a 240-volt/32-amp charging station at night, and your car will be fully charged by the next morning. Or, with location-based charging, you can wait to charge your Bolt until you’re away from home to save on your home energy costs. You’ll get about 25 miles per hour of time that your Bolt spent charging.
Although you can use any standard 120-volt outlet, it is ultimately more efficient to use the Bolt’s accompanying charging station. The charging station will charge the Bolt five times faster than regular outlets will, and you won’t have to worry about setting it up yourself, as it will be professionally installed for you. Plus, the charging station comes with a 25-foot charging cord that can be installed either indoors or outdoors, so don’t worry if you don’t have access to an enclosed garage. However, if you really want to amp up your charging efficiency, use available DC for fast charging, providing you with 90 miles of travel for every 30 minutes you charge the vehicle. The Bolt comes with a ChargePoint card in the glove box, and, after an easy activation, you can use the card at thousands of public charging areas nationwide.
You’ll never want for storage with the 2018 Chevrolet Bolt’s roomy interior. The rear seats fold down easily and quickly to give you a whopping 56.6 cubic feet of storage space. There is also an available false cargo floor that can help keep your items organized or serve to hide any items you may want to keep away from prying eyes.
The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt will comfortably seat five people, providing plenty of space for passengers around their shoulders, head, and legs. Plus, the position of the battery provides a flat floor, allowing for increased room in the vehicle as well as an easier entrance and exit for you and your passengers. You’ll never feel cramped in a Bolt.
The front console is multipurpose, providing a sliding armrest and storage bins. If that’s not enough, the generous cupholders and the handy charging station behind the shifter will keep you feeling connected just like you’re at home.
Express your sense of style with Chevrolet Bolt’s eight different color possibilities. Whether you like muted neutrals or prefer a pop of color, Chevrolet has a color palette that is perfect for your personality and style.
Turn heads with the new Bolt’s beautifully sculpted body and strong wheel arches, which give your crossover an undeniable presence on the road.
