Sculpted bodysides and strong wheel arches offer a solid, robust stance on the road


Because batteries do not require air for combustion, an enclosed, flat underbody streamlines airflow and improves aerodynamics


Aluminum enclosures on the front fender, hood, door and liftgate for increased efficiency.


Seats easily fold down for 56.6 cu. ft. of flexible cargo volume. Thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats, you'll have the flexibility to transport larger-shaped items whenever you need


It's huge back there. With a maximum cargo space of 56.6 cu. ft., Bolt EV is fit to take on your life


Provides additional space when you need it while keeping your cargo organized, easily accessible and neatly stowed away

2017 Bolt EV Electric Vehicle Crossover 200 Miles per Charge

All-Electric Technology, Now An Everyday Reality

An all-electric vehicle offering an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range per full charge for an affordable price – unheard of?
Not anymore.


More Range. Less Thinking About Charging.

Bolt EV offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range per full charge – which is five times the amount needed for the average daily commute of 40 miles. This means you could potentially go a couple of days without having to charge the battery, if you choose. Think of it as driving around on a half tank of gas – so the only thing you have to think about is where you’re going next.

Channel Your Power

An EPA-estimated 238 miles of range per full charge is incredible. You can optimize your range through a regenerative process, also known as the “regen effect,” which automatically helps the battery restore more electricity while driving. Here are a few techniques that allow you to control when and how you want to channel even more electricity to the battery:

Allows you to slow down without using the brake pedal while transferring energy back to the battery, and then converts that energy into electricity. It’s not magic. It’s just a simple pull of the Regen on Demand paddle on your steering wheel. And doing just that, helps optimize range. Of course, you must use your brake pedal if you need to stop immediately.

Allows you to speed up and slow down by using the accelerator pedal. It works something like this: Press your foot down to increase speed, just like you normally would. To slow down,
just lift your foot off the accelerator pedal. So, instead of losing energy when slowing down, One Pedal Driving helps you generate more energy to the battery. And it’s just one more reason to drive Bolt EV.

Custom Fit Charging

When it comes to charging, everything is centered around your driving needs. With plenty of charging options and personalized settings you can customize your charging times to fit your schedule, or even
your location.

You’re in Charge

With the available 240-volt charging unit (professional installation required), charging your Bolt EV is as easy as plugging in your cell phone. The available 240-volt charging unit provides more power and will charge your Bolt EV faster. The standard Location-Based Charging feature makes it easy to customize your charging settings when at home, and take advantage of public charging when away.

The available 240-volt charging unit is the fastest way to recharge your battery at home and offers more power than a 120-volt outlet. This higher-voltage system can provide up to an average of 25 miles of range per 1 hour of charge. You can fully replenish your battery from empty to full in about 9.5 hours.

Program your charge settings whether you’re home or away. Using the GPS signal in the car, Bolt EV will know when you’re home and will activate according to your preset times. If you’re somewhere else, and the vehicle is plugged in, Bolt EV will know to charge immediately.

Bolt EV offers available DC Fast Charging capability, which provides a GM-estimated up to 90 miles of range in about 30 minutes of charge time. That’s enough time to enjoy a cup of coffee. DC Fast Charging stations are available for public use and are perfect for topping off your charge while on the go.

Curious about charging and how easy it can be? Our EV experts explain it all. Watch charging videos.

The Battery: Where It All Starts

You have places to go, and the Chevrolet Bolt EV makes it possible with a nickel-rich lithium-ion battery. Here’s how: The battery chemistry enhances heat resistance and a liquid cooling system helps manage its temperature when the outside climate varies. Plus, the battery pack has an energy capacity of 60 kWh – which allows you to travel an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge.

And thanks to an innovative battery cell arrangement,
Bolt EV offers a low-profile underbody. This maximizes interior space for passengers and cargo. The centrally located battery pack provides an optimal center of gravity for excellent ride
and handling.

EV experts have to say about it. Watch videos on the battery.

Customize And Control With Ease

By learning your every move, Bolt EV helps keep efficiency at its peak. Want to know how much energy you’ve used? There’s a screen for that. Valuable information like your battery levels, range estimation, charge settings and climate controls is readily available on the standard 10.2-inch diagonal center display screen and 8-inch diagonal driver cluster.

Safety starts with you. Safety features are no substitute for the driver’s responsibility to operate the vehicle in a safe manner. The driver should remain attentive to traffic, surroundings and road conditions at all times. Read the vehicle Owner’s Manual for important feature limitations and information.


A New Outlook On Driving

Surround Vision

This available feature uses four strategically placed cameras to create a virtual bird’s-eye view of the vehicle. While maneuvering in low speed, all camera viewpoints seamlessly merge to transmit a clear side-by-side digital image to the large 10.2-inch diagonal screen, allowing you to see both the area behind and around you. Just by looking at one screen you get twice the view.

Rear Camera Mirror

This available innovative rearview mirror technology projects a wide-angle view of the area behind the vehicle in the inside rearview mirror. The mirror surface doubles as a video screen and provides the driver with a full, high-resolution view, without the obstruction of rear head restraints or rear-seat passengers. So you can make sure there’s nothing behind you but
a clear view.
