Chevrolet Announces New Chevy Bolt Mileage

Out with the old, in with the new… that’s sometimes how it feels in the ever-evolving automobile industry. But one fad that certainly doesn’t seem to be going anywhere is electric cars. Recently, Chevrolet made an exciting announcement about its new 2017 Chevy Bolt EV range. The Chevy Bolt mileage has been estimated at 238 miles on a single charge. This significantly tops today’s standard electric cars, which average around a 100-mile range.

The 238-mile range was determined by using the Environment Protection Agency’s testing cycle for electric cars, which took the Chevy Bolt through different driving conditions, both highway and city, and along different terrains. The Chevy Bolt mileage estimate beats its competitor’s estimated mileage by 23 miles.

GM looks forward to releasing the new Chevy Bolt as there is no doubt it will make an unforgettable statement in the electric car industry. With over 200 miles to drive per charge, the Chevy Bolt should help alleviate the common “range anxiety.” This fear of running out of charge before arriving at one’s destination may be one of the biggest things holding consumers back from going electric. With this concern out of the way, the new 2017 Chevy Bolt may increase the demand for electric cars.
