Some days are long. Your range is too.

Not sure how far an EPA-estimated 238 miles will get you? Think about it this way: The average daily commute is only about 40 miles round trip. So you’ll have 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.  

REGEN ON DEMANDTM

With just a simple pull of the paddle on your steering wheel, you’re able to slow down without using the actual brake pedal. This helps convert energy into more electricity and then transfers it back to the battery.   

ONE-PEDAL DRIVING

Instead of losing energy when slowing down, this feature helps you transfer energy to the battery. It works like this: When driving in Low mode at any speed, you can slow down – or even come to a complete stop – by simply lifting your foot off the accelerator. This means you may use your brakes less and help increase your range. One-Pedal Driving and deceleration features may be limited when the battery is near full charge or cold. You should always use your brake pedal if you need to stop quickly. See owner’s manual for full details on One-Pedal Driving and Regen on Demand.

ELECTRONIC PRECISION SHIFT

Allows you to easily and electronically select gears, while providing a smooth and precise response. So there’s no clunky shifter, which creates more open front passenger space.

Charging is as easy as plugging in your cell phone

The great thing about Bolt EV is you can top off your battery as much or as little as you like. Or you can simply plug in at night and by the morning it’s charged up and ready to go. Without thinking, plugging in could become a part of your daily routine.

It all starts with the battery

A nickel-rich lithium-ion battery technology makes it possible to enjoy Bolt EV for a very long time. Here’s how: The battery chemistry enhances heat resistance, allowing the battery to tolerate heat before using power to cool it down. And an active thermal management system helps manage the battery temperature in extremely hot and cold weather conditions.
