2017 Bolt EV North American Car of the Year
The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV is helping its manufacturer continue its stranglehold on North American Car of the Year honors. Following in the tire tracks of the Corvette Stingray, Silverado and Colorado pickup trucks, the group of 60 automotive experts have chosen the brand new Chevrolet electric vehicle as the 2017 North American Car of the Year. The 2017 Bolt EV had to beat out dozens of other vehicles to win this year’s prestigious award. This is the fourth consecutive year that a vehicle bearing the Chevy bowtie has been named the continent’s best car.
“The Bolt EV fulfills Chevrolet’s promise to offer an affordable, long-range electric,” Mark Reuss, executive vice president, GM Global Product Development said. “It is a game-changer that is not only a great electric vehicle; it’s a great vehicle — period.”
Why is the 2017 Bolt EV so special?
Not only will the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV offer a range of more than 380 kilometers with a full battery, but the car also has one of the most affordable price tags in its class. Don Wheaton customers that would like to own the new Chevy compact electric vehicle are looking at a base manufacturer’s suggested retail price of a little more than $30,000 plus other applicable fees and taxes.
How does the Bolt EV work?
Engineers from Chevrolet didn’t need to reinvent the wheel when it came to the development of the 2017 Bolt EV. The company used lessons learned from the Volt gas/electric hybrid sedan and took them to the next level by adding the Regen on Demand steering wheel paddle.
