5 reasons to buy the 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV

1. Great range for a small EV

If you're interested in electric cars, you'll know that the range can vary across different models. If you're looking to balance high mileage with a practical, compact shape, the 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a great choice. It'll do an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge, which is more than enough to get you where you need to go.

Even if you do need to charge on a longer journey, you can add up to around 100 miles of extra range in just 30 minutes on a DC fast charger (depending on the speed of the charger).

2. Two models with lots of features

The 2023 Bolt comes in two models. The base 1LT is well equipped from the get-go with an HD rear vision camera, cloth bucket seats, keyless open and start, and a 10.2-inch touchscreen. If you want more, look to the 2LT trim, which adds rear cross-traffic alert and rear park assist, as well as heated front seats, a power driver seat, and a heated leather steering wheel.

3. Connected technology

Across all models, it's easy to stay connected with wireless Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto connectivity. This allows you to take calls hands-free while giving you access to all your favorite apps. Combine this with the available Wi-Fi hotspot and you've got the makings of the perfect road trip.

If you love to soundtrack every drive, the infotainment package—available on the 2LT trim—has a premium Bose® sound system with seven speakers.

4. Hatchback practicality

The compact footprint of the 2023 Chevy Bolt EV makes it a great choice if you regularly drive in the city or on narrow mountain roads. Don't let the small size fool you, though, you still get plenty of space for your crew and their things. Front legroom is 44.3 inches with the rear seats getting 36 inches, which is plenty for kids and adults alike. When it comes to hauling your stuff, the trunk offers 16.6 cu-ft of cargo space but that expands to 57 cu-ft with the rear seats folded.

5. Instant torque

One of the joys of electric vehicles is the instantly available torque. As soon as you put your foot down, you have access to 266 lb-ft. This means the 2023 Bolt is quick off the line, making it great for pulling away from stop lights or merging into traffic. Its zero-to-60 time is a very respectable 6.5 seconds (according to the manufacturer, when new). Altogether, this makes the Bolt a very fun car to drive while still being practical.
