The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is going to enjoy just as much success as the vehicle that came before it and it isn’t giving the Toyota Prius much choice. The Prius needs to go fully electric or it could be signing its own death warrant in the future.

There are many people who don’t think that there is a future for hybrids or plug-in hybrids and the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt could prove this to be true. Hybrid vehicles may soon be a thing of the past and vehicles such as the Prius fall into this category.

Electric vehicles just keep on getting better with each year, the Renault Zoe for instance has a price tag of just $17,000 and the Tesla Model S has a driving range of 300 miles on a single charge. The future is going to be all-electric not half and half.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt is going to be among the leaders and it may offers enough to send the Toyota Prius and other hybrids into a downward spiral that they will not be able to come back from, unless they go fully electric.

But what do you think, is the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt and all-electric vehicles the way of the future, can they wipe out hybrids?

well..None of the pure Electric cars are suitable for cross country trips or long distance trips. That makes BOLT unsuitable and Prius more suitable. Prius will sure some lustre but it is going to be minimal and the quality of Prius cars is so proven and it is going to take some time for BOLT to prove it is a great quality automobile before it starts eating away Prius sales. Nothing is guaranteed.

The vast majority of vehicles sold are still conventional gasoline powered. Many people cannot plug their cars in regularly. Prius works fine for these people but Bolt does not.
