As the first economical electric car, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV has created its name in the market. It has achieved various awards including the Motor Trends 2017 Car of the Year, 2017 Green Car of the Year and 2017 North American Car of the Year.

Its impressive performance, spacious interior, and advanced technologies, Bolt EV, has completely reinvented what an electric vehicle can be. With its nickel-rich lithium-ion battery technology, charging is as convenient as plugging a cellphone. A Bolt EV can travel an EPA-estimated 238 miles on a full charge. Imagine how much fuel and money this Bolt EV can save.

According to Motor Trend, "Perhaps the most impressive thing about the Bolt EV is there are no caveats, no "for an electric car" qualifiers needed in any discussion. It is, simply, a world-class small car, and that's before you factor in the benefits inherent in the smoothness, silence, and instant-on torque provided by the electric motor. The ride is firm and sporty, but transmitted road noise is very well damped. The steering has slightly artificial weighting, but brake feel is natural, and once you learn to use the higher regenerative braking modes, you can pretty much drive all the time without touching the friction brakes at all." says the source.

A tablet-like display makes it convenient to access real-time information quickly. Details can be seen on the interactive, standard 10.2-inch diagonal color touch-screen and 8-inch diagonal driver cluster. It shows battery levels, range estimation, charge settings and climate controls.

What's more interesting about this Bolt EV is, it compatible with Apple and Android devices. A smarter way to use phones to listen to music, get directions, access to apps, call friends and more.

Not only a plus point for compatibility with devices, but it also has safety features. Bolt EV has the technology available to help make your driving safer, including some ingenious radar- and camera-based systems for protection on all sides.

A fuel saving and performance, surely Chevrolet Bolt EV is nearly on the top of the list, for its price of 29,995 in dollars, it has made any other vehicle on sale in archaic. No waiting list, maybe it's the Chevrolet Bolt EV that is the electric car of your dreams.
