Chevy’s 238-Mile Promise

238-Mile promise

The Doors Are Open

Chevy has made a promise – a 238-Mile promise. So, what does this mean? Well, with the all-new Chevy Bolt, it means you’ll be going far.

Chevy has promised that the 2017 Chevrolet Volt EV will have a 238-mile range on a full charge. This is groundbreaking for not just the Chevy Bolt, but for electric cars everywhere.

Fully electric cars have gained popularity over the last years, partly because of its money-saving efficiency and partly because of its low environmental impact. That’s why Chevy has devoted so much to making the Chevy Bolt the ideal electric car.

GM hopes to not only boost the popularity of this car, but raise the standard of electric cars themselves. The Chevy Bolt will be unique because unlike most other EV’s on the market, it will have a range of over 200 miles when fully charged, and it’ll come in at a reasonable MSRP of $37,000. And that’s before the $7,500 federal tax rebate.

“If you look at the reason why people didn’t buy electrified or pure electric vehicles, it was really around either the cost or price range, or in some cases utility. We think with the Bolt we have all of those covered and more,” said Mark Reuss, GM executive vice president of global product development.

The 2017 Chevy Bolt is sure to impress. Are you excited for it? Let all of us know at Dale Earnhardt Chevrolet near Charlotte, NC today!

Lyft Will Offer New Chevy Bolt Through Express Drive Program

The Chevy Bolt Is On It’s Way

In a modern world that relies increasingly on smartphone apps and social media to streamline our daily routine, auto makers sometimes need to take a leap into the realm of technology in order to stay one step ahead of the competition. That’s why General Motors is partnering up with the Lyft ridesharing app in order to draw attention to the upcoming all-electric 2017 Chevrolet Bolt. The Bolt will be available to Lyft drivers through the app’s new Express Drive program.

There are benefits to this for both drivers and passengers. Express Drive allows Lyft drivers to rent a vehicle for free or for a significantly reduced cost to use while they’re on the job, reducing the amount of gas they use in the process. Driver and rider alike will get exposed to Chevy’s new Bolt, which is essentially free advertising for GM. Plus, the 2017 Bolt will serve as an environmentally-friendly option for Lyft drivers who want to reduce emissions while they’re on the road.

The presence of the Chevy Bolt as a rental option in the Express Drive program is only the first step in the auto maker’s long-term vision for the partnership. Ideally, the eventual goal is for General Motors to develop a network of autonomous vehicles that will be able to shuttle Lyft customers without a driver. However, as self-driving tech is still in development, that aspiration is still a few years out of sight.
