The Chevy Bolt and Volt in Regina
The New 2017 Chevrolet Bolt Electric Vehicle
The Chevy Bolt EV is here to change the game for Chevrolet and electric vehicles, as engineers designed it to be attainable for the average driver and very, very green. The company set out to create an affordable electric vehicle with a long driving range, and this is exactly what they’ve accomplished. The Bolt is purely electric and has a range of up to 320 kilometres per charge, giving you plenty of power for an entire week’s worth of driving.
You’ll charge it like you would your cellphone: just by plugging it in. The standard 120-volt charger and available 240-V charger are your options here, the latter fully charging the battery in about 9 hours. The Bolt features an onboard GPS antenna to locate public charging stations when you’re away from home.
The New 2017 Chevrolet Volt Hybrid
There are quite a few additions to the all-new Chevy Volt in the 2017 model year, such as even better fuel efficiency and an all-electric range of 85 kilometres–plenty for a full day’s work. And when you combine that with the fuel engine, you’ve got an estimated range of up to 600 km. Better yet, if you keep your battery charged up each day, you can go over 1600 km before ever refilling the gas tank.
This year’s new 2-motor drive unit improves efficiency by 12 percent while also cutting off 100 lbs. of unnecessary weight, making for an even more efficient drive. The Volt also gets a Regen on Demand feature to let drivers control energy regeneration as they drive. You’ll charge the Volt’s battery at public charging stations or at home with a 120V portable cord set.
You’ll be saving a lot of money driving Electric. Consumer Reports states you’ll be spending about a third as much money to run an electric vehicle, as opposed to a gas one. You won’t be subject anymore to fluctuating oil prices, and you’ll be producing zero emissions. It’s certainly something to feel good about, and it’s affordable too.
