Graff Mount Pleasant compares the two Chevrolet electric vehicles, the Bolt and the Volt, in a recent post on its website.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a completely electric hatchback that gets 238 miles per charge. It also offers one-pedal driving technology to save more energy, the posting said. Seats in the vehicle fold down to offer 56.6 cubic feet of cargo space. A 10.2-inch MyLink display shows information about the Bolt, energy use and driving habits.
The 2017 Chevrolet Volt is a hybrid sedan that gets up to 420 miles on a full charge when paired with a full tank of gas. This potentially means driving up to 1,100 miles between fill-ups, as long as the car is charged regularly, the posting said. Batteries in the Volt have an 8-year, 100,000-mile warranty, while the vehicle comes with five years or 60,000 miles of roadside assistance day or night. Regen On Demand is similar to the one-pedal Bolt technology and sends leftover energy back to the battery. The Driver Information Center offers energy-use information, as well as tips to improve battery range.
Purchasing either vehicle could result in a federal tax credit worth more than $7,000. State incentives are also available, the posting said.
