For an excellent deal on long-lasting all-electric travel, look no further than the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt.
What’s new for the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV?
This year’s Bolt gains 21 miles of battery range, giving you approximately 259 miles of all-electric driving range. The 2020 Bolt also introduces an improved, higher-definition rearview camera and surround-view cameras. Both offer improved visibility, with the latter providing a top-down look at the Bolt as you ease it into a rather tight parallel parking space.
Why choose the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV?
There’s a lot to like about the Bolt, starting with its impressive all-electric battery range. Besides getting you around without a drop of gas, the Bolt offers a spacious cabin and a wealth of high-tech features. Its performance is equally lovable. When you hit the throttle, you’re rewarded with quick acceleration. You’ll also be impressed with the Bolt’s handling, which inspires confidence both around sharp corners and down winding roads.
What is the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt battery range?
This year, the Bolt travels further than ever, PA-estimated battery range of 259 miles. That’s 21 miles more than last year’s model could manage. Most drivers can eek a week’s worth of commutes out of that range, with miles leftover for a little weekend adventure.
How fast can the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV charge?
The answer to this question depends on which charger you’re using. Plug your Bolt into a regular 120-volt household-style power outlet and it gives you about 4 miles of range per hour of charge. With the 240-volt Level 2 charger, you get about 25 miles of range per hour of charge. You can fully charge the Bolt with a Level 2 charger in about 10 hours.
The fastest option is the DC Fast Charger, which replenishes 160 miles’ worth of battery range in just one hour. This available equipment is highly recommended, especially if you plan to hit Level 3 charging stations during out-of-town road trips.
Does the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt still qualify for a tax credit?
To get a tax credit for your new Bolt, you need to act fast. General Motors, which produces the Chevy Bolt, is set to lose this attractive tax incentive after March 2020. According to the tax incentive agreement, automakers lose the full $7,500 tax credit after sales reach 200,000 electric cars. GM reached this number last year. Since then, the tax credit has been cut in half twice, leaving current shoppers with a $1,875 credit.
However, depending upon where you live, state and local tax incentives may be available. Ask your friendly dealership for more details. But even without a tax incentive, EV shoppers get a money saving deal. Imagine being able to drive anywhere without ever spending a penny on gasoline!
