Earlier this year, Chevrolet announced that the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt range will increase by 21 miles over the previous Bolt, offering a total range of 259 miles. This means that you can now drive the Bolt EV more confidentially on your daily commutes.
“The Bolt EV set the benchmark for long-range, affordable electric vehicles, and we’re excited to raise the bar by offering nearly 10 percent more EPA-estimated range for the 2020 model year,” remarked Tim Grewe, director of Global Battery Cell Engineering and Strategy. Getting an extra 21 miles out of the Bolt EV did not require a new physical battery pack or a change in how the battery is integrated into the Bolt. Instead, the Chevrolet battery engineering team was able to alter the cell electrodes’ energy to enact the change.
Chevrolet also revealed that they are partnering with Qmerit so you can more easily have charging equipment installed at your home. You will be able to seamlessly get quotes from certified electricians and then charge while in the comfort of your home.
