Ever the automotive innovators of General Motors, Chevrolet has made the 2017 Bolt EV its definitive revision to the American automobile customers’ expectations of an electric vehicle’s inherent appeal.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV raises a profound bar in its market segment with unprecedented interior space, daringly dramatic design, and an impressive long range. The brand’s signature green machine stands solidly atop a 102.4-inch wheelbase with modest front overhang and a concealed interior floor-mounted flat battery back. It’s all dressed in the deceptive profile of a modest crossover with big windows, a low beltline 16.9 cubic feet of cargo space, and a plunging raked windshield. Combined with the expansive upright panoramic view from the sizable greenhouse, it all serves to make the incredibly spacious SUV-esque interior seating arrangement for five, massive rear-window glass extending down to the license plate, LED taillamps on the wide-opening liftgate and overall light-as-air feel all the more impressive.
Wrapping the LED headlamps around the front fascia’s forward edge adds to a surprisingly aggressive persona, along with a reimagining of Chevy’s defining dual-element grille. The redesign sports a flawless clean look that incorporates the three-dimensional depth of some handsome graphic accents in two optional signature colors to complement any exterior hue.
The 10.2-inch “floating” instrument panel with capacitive touch control lends the interior a broad horizontal feel that pairs well with the maxed-out knee room and connected multipurpose center console’s wireless charging station, sliding armrest over a large tablet-sized storage compartment, and side-by-side cupholders. Thin-frame seats add to the already roomy rear seating and all seats’ designs incorporate safety-minded side air bag modules.
