Chevrolet unveiled its new Chevy Bolt EV and EUV. Compared to other electric vehicles, Chevrolet has made its Bolt EVs affordable. The starting price of the Bolt EV is $25,600. The starting price of the Bolt EUV is $27,200.

Chevrolet offers its customers an incentive if they choose a Bolt vehicle. Chevrolet describes its “Plug-In Promise” initiative as “a fun, responsive all-electric vehicle that delivers the benefits of driving a Chevrolet with less scheduled maintenance, new ways to charge, and innovative ways to own a Bolt EV or Bolt EUV easier than ever.

Consumers can charge their Chevy Bolt EV and EUV at home or at public stations. In fact, Chevrolet will install a home charging station when a customer purchases a Chevy Bolt EV or EUV.

There are three different chargers for home charging. Level one load is a standard electrical outlet used with a 120 volt household outlet. The Bolt will get 4 miles of range per hour of charging.

There are two level two loaders. The difference is that with the 240-volt appliance outlet, the Bolt EV gets a range of 26 miles per hour from charging. With 240 volts at up to 80 amps, the Bolt EV achieves up to 39 miles of range per hour of charge.

There are more than 40,000 public charging stations. In Atlanta, electric vehicle owners will find most public charging stations in the Buckhead area.

There are two types of chargers at public charging stations. The Level 2 charger that gets up to 39 miles of range per hour of charge and the DC fast charge that achieves up to 100 miles of range in 30 minutes.

The Bolt EV has an EPA-est. 259 miles on a full charge. The Bolt EUV has an EPA-est. 247 miles on a full charge.

Chevrolet introduced a hands-free driving feature in the Bolt EUV only called “Super Cruise”. According to Chevrolet, Super Cruise includes adaptive cruise control, enhanced automatic emergency braking and lane centering. With lane centering, the Bolt EUV will “detect curves with cameras, sensors, and real-time GPS.”

As California and Virginia ban gas-powered vehicles by 2035 and 15 states implement zero-emission vehicle requirements, the nation is turning to electric vehicles to save the environment. What the Chevy Bolt EV and EUV offer is ahead of the curve, while in the long run General Motors also plans to build a network of electric vehicle charging stations across America.
