2017 Chevrolet Bolt Summary

Except maybe for the Fiat 500e that once briefly offered a fantastic lease deal, the Bolt EV is the most financial sense-making electric car made, if you don’t mind having other people help pay for your car. But it still can’t unequivocally save money compared to gas-powered car. And its green virtues, which we didn’t get into in this review, are arguable (lithium mines, coal-powered electric plants). However: mechanically, it works. Quick acceleration, nimble handling, good interior room in a small exterior package. Spring another $750 for the fastest charging system, and find a place on the road to use it, and you can even drive farther than 240 miles at a time.
