My EV Story: Greg's Chevy Bolt

January 12, 2020

Man standing next to dark grey Chevy Bolt

I can't say enough positive things about my Chevy Bolt.

First of all, it's fast. The electric motor produces 200 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque and goes from zero to 60 in 6.5 seconds.

Range? Not a problem. The Bolt has an EPA-rated range of 238 miles, but since I drive 90% around town, I rarely drain the battery, and I am able to re-charge overnight with a standard three-prong 120-volt outlet.

And since I'm an engineer working in energy conservation, driving my Bolt lets me geek-out on electric car stuff like voltage and kilowatt-hours, while enjoying the peace of mind that I'm generating zero tailpipe emissions.I

'm still getting to know all the features-it's crazy when your car is smarter than you are! The 10-inch touch screen is fun, and Nine Inch Nails sounds great through the Bose sound system.

This is definitely the nicest car I've ever owned, and I can't imagine ever going back to a gasoline engine. The only "downside" to my Bolt is that my partner is always borrowing it!

Two thumbs up for my Chevy Bolt!
