Chevrolet Bolt

More range for 2020 — The fivepassenger Chevrolet Bolt EV that
launched for the 2017 model year had
a claimed 238-mile range on a full

Chevrolet claims the electric car can
hit 60 mph from rest in 6.5 seconds
thanks to the motor’s 266 pound-feet
of torque that kicks in right from

Energy Saver tires help the range, as
does regenerative braking that charges
the batteries while you slow down. All

the car’s basic components — motor,
lithium-ion battery pack, on-board
charging system, instrument panel and

batteries from empty in about 10 hours,
while charging at 120-volt household
current takes more than a day.
