Chevy Bolt to start at $37,500 before rebates
Chevy wants the Bolt to be a mainstream and affordable vehicle that can attract a wide swath of buyers. The company estimates the five-door's range at over 200 miles, which should be plenty for most customers. The promo site also touts that the batteries can recharge in nine hours from the automaker's 240-volt home charger.
Inside, buyers find a high-tech cabin with a customizable 10.2-inch infotainment screen and an 8-inch instrument display. To limit range anxiety, the vehicle's computers can take into account the way an owner drives, the weather, terrain, and more to calculate just how much distance remains from the batteries. The system also pushes people to be greener drivers through a game-like interface that offers rewards and rankings.
If $37,500 or less for this five-door EV intrigues you, read our Quick Spin of a preproduction example from CES for a better idea of what the Bolt is really like. The powertrain's regenerative braking impressed us even over the short driving course, and the infotainment system seemed incredibly useful.
