Over 4.5 Million Electric Miles Driven in 2017 Bolt EVs
Since the all-electric sedan went on sale in December 2016, the 3,492 Bolt EV owners have driven a cumulative 4,570,300 miles as of April 2017, saving an estimated 175,000 gallons of fuel. The positive effects of switching to electric can be seen already in the amount of fuel not burned and the money saved by owners for using only electric power to fuel their vehicles. And with so many miles driven by these pioneering electric vehicle owners, they are proving that a future with exclusively electric power is possible.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV offers a monumental EPA-estimated 238 miles of range per charge. To most drivers hesitant to make the switch due to a lack of range, this electric hatchback proves “all-electric” doesn’t mean you’re tethered to the plug. The Bolt EV is fully prepared to take on the daily commute and still have enough charge to handle unplanned trips at a moments notice. One Bolt EV owner reported setting a new range record by traveling 310 miles on a single charge and on a continuous trip*.
“Our early Bolt EV customers are proving the crossover’s functionality, flexibility and long-range capabilities on a daily basis,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing for Chevrolet cars and crossovers. “Chevrolet is committed to delivering a game-changing vehicle and we’ve done just that. As we continue our national rollout of the Bolt EV, we’re making electric driving accessible to even more drivers.”
