The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers a driving range of 238 miles and this figure has now been given certification from the EPA. Now we have a breakdown of what that range really offers.
The 238 mile driving range of the Chevrolet Bolt EV is a combination of city and highway driving. The EPA went on to say that the range in the city alone is more than that of the combined figure, at 255.1 miles when the battery has been charged fully.
City driving in the Chevrolet Bolt EV comes in at the same as that offered on the Tesla Model S 75D and this is of course more expensive to purchase than the Bolt.
The highway range of the Chevrolet Bolt EV comes in at about 217.4 miles and of course this is excellent when you consider the fact that electric vehicles tend to use more of their energy when traffic is flowing freely and you are driving at high speed.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV offers a battery of 60kWh and when charging it from zero to full you can expect it to take 9.3 hours when using a 240 volt circuit Level 2 charging unit.
