How Far Can a Chevy EV Really Take You?

Electric vehicles are taking the world by storm, and as far as car manufacturers go, anybody who's anybody has at least one, if not several, hybrid and electric vehicles available. Even as popular as hybrid vehicles have become over the last decade, pretty soon, they won't compare to their all-electric counterparts. So how do the newest Chevy EV developments compare to all the rest?

The Chevy Bolt EV is Chevy's current fully electric vehicle, but it is slated to be fully redesigned in 2021 and joined by a larger Chevy Bolt EUV. No longer do you need to take even periodic trips to the fuel pump because these cars can be exclusively charged at home if you so desire. In a time where concern about the environment, not to mention our pocketbooks, is becoming more and more prevalent, Chevy is responding with more EV options to help consumers.

How are EVs Changing the World?

Electric vehicles, or EVs, are vehicles that don't require any gasoline, diesel, or other fuel to operate. These designs run on nothing but electricity and, in the case of the Chevy Bolt, can be recharged from the comfort of your own home. This is particularly significant because as government policies continue to restrict the oil industries, and as more and more people are becoming passionate about decreasing their carbon footprints, it's only a matter of time before EVs go from new and fancy to a regular thing. Even now, local areas are passing laws that will completely prohibit the purchasing of a new gasoline-powered vehicle within just a few short years. If you weren't already on the electric vehicle bandwagon, it's about time you hopped on board.

Not only are EVs good for our environment, but they are also going to be a huge influence on the health problems of people all over the world. It's a well-known fact that big cities are completely overrun with pollution, and a large amount of that pollution comes from traditional vehicles. All this pollution causes health issues such as allergies, asthma, bronchitis, fatigue, weakened immune systems, and so much more. Poor air quality is a problem that companies such as Chevy are working hard to solve. The fact of the matter is whether you like it or not, electric vehicles are coming, and they're going to make a difference in the world.

The 2021 Chevy Bolt EV

Thanks to the unpredictable year that was 2020, the redesigned Chevy Bolt EV has been temporarily delayed. Instead of coming out at the end of 2020 like new year models tend to do, the new Bolt EV will be a 2022 model year and enter production during late summer 2021. However, even though we have a little bit of a wait ahead of us, we still have a lot to look forward to.

The good news is that since the 2022 Bolt is taking a bit longer than planned to reach production, the odds are good (barring another unexpected roadblock, of course) that the Bolt EUV (electric utility vehicle) crossover will be released around the same time. This means that people shopping for Chevy EVs in 2021 will have not one but two different size options.

In the meantime, you can still buy the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV without having to wait. The 2020 Bolt EV is a wonderful example of a very well-done electric vehicle, and Bolt EV fans are thrilled about never having to spend a single penny on gasoline. The differences between the 2020 and the 2022 models are expected to be relatively small, so there is no reason why you can't buy your new electric vehicle right now!

The Chevy Bolt EV gets more power than you might think, considering it runs on electricity rather than gasoline. In fact, the 2020 Bolt EV gets up to 200 horsepower, which is plenty for a city-dwelling commuter vehicle. And while you don't need to live in the city to own a Bolt, since it tends to get around 259 miles per charge, most Bolt owners do live either in or near a city of some sort.

This Chevy EV is unique because it allows you to charge your car with a traditional 120-volt outlet in addition to the more common 240-volt outlet option. Other EVs require you to purchase a specialty charging station or go to a public one nearby, but the Chevy Bolt was the first EV to allow the option of charging at home with a regular old outlet. Now the catch to that is the 120-volt outlet only gets you about 4 miles of charge per hour, meaning you would need to charge your EV for a full 12 hours in order to get roughly 48 miles of drive time. However, this is a great option if you don't drive far or need a bit more range when there isn't a charging station nearby.

The 240-volt charging stations give your Bolt around 25 miles of range per hour, making them considerably more efficient. Again, if you don't plan on driving hundreds of miles a day, this is another good option. And however you choose to charge your Chevy Bolt, you can feel good knowing you're making a positive impact on the environment.
