GAME CHANGERS – Pine Belt Chevrolet and the 2017 Chevy Bolt!

It’s an electric vehicle but it drivers further on a charge and has a lower price. It qualifies for a $7,500 tax incentive and the emissions are cleaner than ever. What is this amazing vehicle? It is the award winning Chevrolet Bolt EV from Pine Belt Chevrolet,  your premier Lakewood car dealer of Chevrolet vehicles.

Double the Win, Double the Miles

In addition to previous wins of Motor Trend Car of the Year and Green Car of the Year, the #2017ChevyBolt is the winner of the North American Car of the Year chosen by auto journalists who test-drive vehicles and vote in this prestigious award.  The new #ChevyBolt can travel 238 miles, or 119 miles per gallon equivalent, on a single charge. This is double that of most electric vehicles in the electric car category and at half the cost of its closest competitor, Tesla. The savings you experience by driving the new Chevy Bolt for five years adds up to about $4,500 in fuel costs  over an internal combustion engine vehicle.

 

Comfort and High-Tech

The Bolt EV is a sub-compact Crossover with an interior is as large and comfortable as any standard sedan. But is unlike any other sedan. Instant torque technology makes acceleration instantaneous. The drive system is a high capacity electric motor with 200 horsepower that can go from 0-60 in seven seconds. An Electronic Precision Shift system uses electronic signals to the drive system to deliver power and torque. The newly designed battery pack extends the entire floor of the vehicle and can be charged overnight using a standard 240-volt wall outlet. Even the braking technology is high-tech jewel which sports one pedal driving and braking using a paddle on the back side of the steering wheel.

Driving The Electric Chevy Bolt EV: Will It Cause You Range Anxiety?

chevy-bolt-4

Drivers of the #Chevy Bolt EV rely on a gauge that is prominently displayed to help keep track of available range. This gauge provides valuable information.

 

The gauge is displayed on an 8.0-inch digital instrument-cluster screen.  The number in the middle represents the vehicle’s best estimate for how much further it can travel before running out of juice.

 

This middle number is flanked by a maximum and a minimum range estimate. As the Chevy Bolt EV is driven more efficiently, a green bar rises from the middle number to indicate that the vehicle is trending upward toward the maximum range.

chevy-bolt-5

If the vehicle is using more energy, a yellow bar stretches down toward the minimum range number. The spread between the maximum and minimum numbers narrows as the vehicle’s battery is further depleted. For example, prior to starting a test drive of approximately 240 miles, the Chevy Bolt EV, when fully charged, displayed a main range estimate of 225 miles at the start, with a maximum of 265 and a minimum of 184 miles.  When the test drive was finished, the gauge showed 34 miles, the maximum was 40 and the minimum was 27.

 

Range anxiety in the Chevy Bolt occurs on a different scale than in most other EVs. With less than one-fourth of battery capacity remaining, the range display can sometimes turn into a somewhat disturbing shade of orange; the sort of color that in another EV might prompt you to find a charging station as soon as possible.  But in the Chevy Bolt, it is likely to have 30 or 40 miles of range remaining when this happens, giving you plenty of time to run a few errands before needing to find your next charge point.

If you can charge your cell phone, you can charge the #Chevy Bolt EV.

It is very convenient to charge the Chevy Bolt EV because you can top off your battery as much or as little as you like.  You can plug the vehicle in at night and by the morning, it is charged up and ready to go.  Plugging the Chevy Bolt EV can become a part of your daily routine without leaving your garage.

 

There are several options for charging the Chevy Bolt EV. First, the 240-Volt/32 amp charging unit (professional installation required) is available and is the fastest way to recharge your battery at home.  This option also offers more power than the standard 120-volt outlet and this higher-voltage system can provide up to 25 miles of range per hour of charge time.

 

Second, another option the Chevy Bolt EV offers is the DC Fast Charging capability. This option provides up to 90 miles of range in about 30 minutes of charge time. There are DC Fast Charging stations available for public use and they are perfect for topping off your charge anytime while on the go.

Lastly, you can program your charge settings whether you are home or away. By using the GPS signal in the car, the Chevy Bolt EV knows when you’re home. It will then activate according to your preset times. If you are not home, the Chevy Bolt EV will know to charge immediately. You can even postpone charging until utility rates are at their lowest off-peak prices, which is usually at night while you sleep.

The Chevy Bolt EV: Why Should You Drive Electric?

chevy-bolt-1

There are many reasons why a prospective vehicle buyer should consider the  2017 #Chevy Bolt EV.

 

First, it has a beautifully sculpted exterior and a spacious interior.

Second, it’s performance is impressive and it has advanced technologies.

Third, the Chevy Bolt EV has completely reinvented what an electric vehicle can be. And as if the above reasons were not proof enough, the Chevy Bolt EV was named Motor Trend’s 2017 Car of the Year.

 

You can do it all with the Chevy Bolt EV, except stop for gas.

It is hard to imagine never having to stop for gas, never again.  Regardless of whether your commute consists of traveling to and from work or your commute simply consists of everyday errands, the Chevy Bolt EV goes the distance for you by providing an EPA- estimated 238 miles of range per full charge.

chevy-bolt-2

How far is an EPA-estimated 238 miles?  The average daily commute is only about 40 miles round trip. So, 238 miles is more than enough range to get through an average day. And you could go up to three or four days or even more, without needing to plug in.  You will also have two ways to boost your budget: by cutting out gas along with the addition of generous tax incentives.
