There is always a lot of rivalry among car makers and this is good as it ensures that we keep on seeking some great vehicles come our way. When it comes to Chevrolet they have been going up against Tesla with the Chevrolet Bolt EV.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers the EV powertrain that has around 200 miles range and the bonus of having a reasonable price tag to match. However the 200 mile range does have an asterix. Fans of Tesla have been using this to bring down the Chevrolet Bolt, a vehicle that isn’t able to reach 200 miles without it meeting certain conditions.
This is childish of course as the 200 mile range should be seen as being a target and not something taken literally. The different driving conditions are going to have an effect on how far the vehicle will travel, even if we are talking about the Tesla Model 3.
There really isn’t any good reason to be down on the Asterix associated with the Chevrolet Bolt EV and its driving range. Before you laugh at the vehicle you should get behind the wheel and take it for a test drive.
