The New Chevy Bolt EV 2018 May Not Offer Anything New, But Stays One Of The Best Electric Vehicles In The Market
Electric cars are the future of driving. All the top automakers are coming out with new models of electric cars, and even offering electric versions of their current models. Therefore, if you are planning on buying a new electric car in 2018, you are going to have ample of choice to choose from. Amongst such a huge choice, one electric vehicle which has already managed to capture the hearts of the consumers is that of Chevy Bolt. The first edition of this vehicle is already present in the market for sales, and there is a huge demand for the same. In the year 2018, the company will be coming out with a new model of this vehicle.
There is a lot of excitement amongst the customers as well as the entire auto industry about the changes that will be present in the Chevy Bolt E 2018. However, from the little preview that we got of the new car, there are not going to be many changes made in the same.
In fact, the two models of the car are going to be absolutely similar to each other, except for just a couple of changes. These changes will be seen in the heated steering wheel and a very minor change in the trim level of the vehicle.
In spite of the fact that not many changes are going to present in the 2018 model of Chevy Bolt EV, still the company expects the demand for the same to be high, and the car to be a big and a stiff competition of other top electric vehicles like Hyundai Loniq Electric, Nissan Leaf, BMW i3, Tesla Model 3, Toyota Prius Prime, etc.
High Points Of This Vehicle
- The first biggest point that goes in favor of this vehicle is that it is very reasonably priced and hence, easily affordable by many people.
- Another big advantage of this vehicle is the long driving range that it offers. You can expect a driving range of about 238 miles from this vehicle, which makes it a great car for completing daily chores.
- The car offers a large battery pack option, which also has a fast charging connection. Thanks to these features, the drivers of the vehicle can get their vehicle charged quickly at any public station and complete all their daily drives and activities without any worries.
- The sprightly acceleration that this vehicle has to offer is yet another point that goes in favor of this vehicle.
- The spacious cabin is a major plus point of this Chevy Bolt EV 2018.
Turn Offs About The Vehicle
- The biggest factor that can turn off any customer is the styling of the car. The car has a very dorky styling which is very difficult to appreciate or like. Therefore, any customer, to whom looks matter even slightly, will get immediately turned off from this vehicle.
- The materials used in the interiors of the car are very cheap. Hence, if you are looking for class, you will never buy this vehicle.
- Once the customers decide to opt for the key option, the price of the vehicle increases considerably, making the purchase of the same expensive.
Some important factors about the vehicle that one should consider before deciding whether to buy the same or not, are as follows:
As mentioned before, the huge battery pack in the vehicle gives you a range of 238 miles, which happens to be almost twice of what other similar electric vehicles present on the road currently are offering. To offer such high driving range, the vehicle has been fitted with a 60 kWh battery pack.
There are some preconceived notions about electric cars. Most of the people think that the electric cars will not be able to offer them the power and smoothness that diesel and petrol cars are able to offer. However, Chevy Bolt EV 2018 will change all these notions. This vehicle is everything that you can want from a car, it is fast, it is comfortable and it is highly responsive. The customers have the option of choosing a sports mode, which will make the already highly responsive accelerator even more sensitive to driver inputs.
Transmission And Engine
The engine in both the 2017, as well as the 2018 models of Chevy Bolt remains the same, pretty much like all the other features. However, there is nothing to complain about the same, as the motor of this vehicle provides power in a smooth and quiet manner. This motor allows the vehicle to feel impressive and highly responsive to the driver of the same.
What is disappointing about the 2018 Chevy Bolt is that the company has not added any new and improved safety features, however, it is expected that with the ever increasing demand for this vehicle, the company may very soon come out with an upgraded model with more ambitious changes in the same.
