There is no mystery that our world has taken a beating due to pollution, the overuse of natural resources, and other adversities of sustainability, but the auto industry has made a great effort to slow down the misfortunes. These automobiles deliver when it comes to energy-efficiency, reduced maintenance costs, noise reduction, and just as importantly, being earth friendly.
2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Premier
True to its name, the Chevrolet Bolt is fully electric and packs 200 horses in its hatchback frame, making it a great option for heavy-traffic cities where accelerating is ideal. On highways, the Bolt is a winner, promising a 259-mile journey with just under a 10-hour charge. And while it may look like a small package, the Bolt seats up to five adults and comes with a plethora of standard features available, including Wi-Fi, a “floating” instrument panel, and a couple of optional packages worth considering—the Infotainment (wireless charging, BOSE sound system, and Driver’s Confidence) and safety enhancements, including front pedestrian braking and Intellibeam Headlamps. The Premier also comes with the Comfort and Convenience Packages. Bolt to a dealer and give this one a test spin.
