For months now we have been eagerly awaiting the day when Chevy would release some additional tidbits about the all-electric and all-new 2017 Chevy Bolt EV. That day has finally come, and if you have been wondering how far you will be able to drive in the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV, then we have some good news. Chevy has been saying for a while not that you will have an average range of more than 200 miles, but they actually hit this mark and surpassed it by quite a bit!
What is the Chevy Bolt EV’s driving range?
The 2017 Chevy Bolt EV has an EPA-estimated driving range of 238 miles per charge, which means the average drive would only need to recharge the Bolt once every two or three days. The 2017 Bolt also has different techniques that allow you to increase your driving range by recharging the battery through efficient driving practices.
How long does it take for the 2017 Chevy Bolt to fully charge?
When using the available 240-volt charging unit, you can charge your 2017 Bolt EV to get 25 miles of range for every hour of charge. You can fully charge the 2017 Chevy Bolt in just 9.5 hours — so we recommend just plugging it in overnight. You can even setup your Bolt EV to recognize when it is at home or away, and can be set to only charge during preset times. GM will also be setting up DC Fast Charging stations in various parts of the county, which are estimated to provide up to 90 miles of range in just 30 minutes.
