 In 2017 General Motors intends to take it’s part of EV (electric vehicle) market, offering its new plug-in model.

Bolt EV is equipped with a 60-kwh lithium-ion battery that gives it a range rating of 200 or more miles, making it the first mass-priced 200-mile electric car. Anyone with a typical new-car budget can afford a Bolt. The range and the price by themselves make the Bolt one of the leaders of the EV market today.

 From the outside, this car looks like a tall hatchback, but Chevrolet is classifying the Bolt as a small station wagon.

From the moment you open the door and get behind the wheel, it's clear that this is no ordinary Chevrolet. The interior is spacious and airy with good outward vision in all directions. Seats employ new thin-foam construction, saving space and weight.  

 The Bolt offers an optional rearview camera that provides a full-time rear view even when driving forward.

The interactive, standard 10.2-inch diagonal tablet-like display makes it easy to view and quickly access real-time vehicle information. Splitscreens and expanded views allow you to simply navigate and retrieve your music, contacts and more.

 Like all hybrids and battery-electrics, the Bolt employs regenerative braking, through which the drive motor serves as a generator, using the car's momentum and rotating drive wheels to recharge the battery.

 EV market is growing fast, but charging issue is still a major problem to all producers. For Bolt it takes 9.5 hours to charge fully at 240 volts or you can use DC Fast Charging capability, which provides up to 90 miles of range in about 30 minutes of charge time.

 Unfortunately Bolt model can’t satisfy a long distance traveller, because of the lack of charging stations network so far. The only fast growing network of Supercharger stations belongs to Tesla, set up inside and between major metropolitan areas in US. But 200 miles range is more then enough for enjoying life within the city, driving around, going to work and back home, where you can recharge your electric vehicle.
