The Chevrolet Bolt EV set the range
benchmark for an affordable EV capable of
going the distance by offering an EPA-rated
238 miles on a full charge. Now, Chevrolet
is keeping its promise to offer the Bolt EV
at an affordable price by confirming a base
Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price of
$37,495 including destination charge.
Depending on individual tax situations,
customers may receive an available federal
tax credit of up to $7,500 for a net value of
“Value is a hallmark for Chevrolet and the
pricing of the Bolt EV proves we’re serious
about delivering the first affordable EV with plenty of range for our customers,” said Alan Batey,
president of GM North America and leader of Global Chevrolet. “We have kept our promise yet again,
first on range and now on price.”
Bolt EV buyers will find range, cargo space, technology and safety features standard in a great vehicle
with crossover proportions. The thrill of driving an EV, along with the sales and service support of a
nationwide network of Bolt EV certified Chevrolet dealers, makes the Bolt EV a smart buy for any
The well-equipped LT trim starts at $37,495
and comes with standard features that
include, among others, Regen on Demand™
steering wheel paddle, rear vision camera,
10.2-inch diagonal color touch screen and
MICHELIN™ Self-sealing tires (in certain
circumstances). The top trim Premier
includes all LT equipment plus additional
standard features such as leather-appointed
seats, front and rear heated seats,
surround camera and rear camera mirror.
Pricing includes destination and freight
charges and excludes tax, title, license and
dealer fees. The Bolt EV will be available at
Lynch dealerships in late 2016.
One-pedal driving combines the highest available level of regenerative braking, which captures
otherwise lost energy from deceleration and sends it back to the Bolt EV battery pack for the greatest
total vehicle range. Along with additional software controls, regen braking allows the driver to stop the
vehicle without using the brake pedal in certain driving conditions.
“Bolt EV customers who want an
engaging driving experience will
love the thrill of one-pedal driving,”
said Bolt EV Chief Engineer Josh
Tavel. “They will be able to tailor the
vehicle to their preferred driving
style and maximize their range.”
Progressively stronger levels of
regen braking are employed in all
Bolt EV driving through a series of
four driver-selectable modes:
Operating in Drive and easing off
Operating in Drive and using the Regen on Demand paddle on the back of the steering wheel.
Operating in Low and easing off the accelerator.
Operating in Low and using the Regen on Demand paddle in tandem.
Number 1 provides the lowest level of regen braking and requires the use of the brake pedal to bring
the vehicle to a complete stop. Numbers 2-4 are progressively stronger one-pedal driving modes that in
certain driving situations allow a driver to stop the vehicle without using the brake pedal. (One-pedal
modes do not eliminate the need to use the brake pedal altogether, especially in emergency situations.)
Using a vehicle simulation model, engineers compared regen performance on a testing cycle that
simulated heavy stop-and-go traffic in Drive and another using one-pedal driving while in Low and also
the Regen on Demand paddle. The engineers found that the one-pedal driving can add up to 5 percent
of range to the Bolt EV.
During interviews with Chevrolet, EV enthusiasts expressed their desire for one-pedal driving capability.
Bolt EV owners, much like Chevrolet's enthusiastic Volt customers, will enjoy using regen braking to
maximize every charge of the vehicle’s 60 kWh battery pack.
