Not only is it an impressive car to drive but it’s a fun one, too. The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is packed with the latest technology in its cabin to make your daily commute a lot more enjoyable.

When it comes to performance, technology, and safety, it’s no wonder the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is an even match against its competition.
The Power of Battery-Power
It’s impressive to think that the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV has as much mileage as it does. With a range of 383 kilometers on a 9hr full charge, it can get you from home to work, back, and then some! If you need to know how much energy you’re using, the touch-screen dashboard provides real-time information about battery levels, range estimation, charge settings, climate controls, and more.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV even helps you save your battery as well. Regen on Demand allows you to pull the paddle on your steering wheel to slow your vehicle down without using the brake pedal. This helps convert the energy you’d normally lose from braking into usable electricity and transfers it back into the battery (Note: you should always use your brake pedals for immediate stops). This can also be done with simply lifting your foot off the accelerator pedal. Either way, you’re saving energy, and using it again!
The Latest Technology in Enjoyable Driving
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is equipped with the latest in-cabin technology to make your commute a more enjoyable driving experience. It’s interactive 259mm touch screen display makes it seem like a tablet’s hooked up on your dashboard. With split screen and expanded view capabilities, you can keep your side of the screen about focusing on the road, while your passenger can access music, entertainment, contacts, and more.
The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is also compatible with both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to cater to your smartphone’s needs and access your phone’s content. If you need a signal, OnStar 4G LTE is also available for you to connect up to seven devices at once and access the internet right in the vehicle (see for details).
Advanced Safety Precautions
With the latest features in standard safety technology, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is capable of protecting, and preventing you, from collisions. Equipped with multiple radar and camera-based systems for 360 degree analysis and protection, it’s one of the best precautions in making sure you don’t have to worry about getting into a collision along with Front Pedestrian Braking and Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist. But in the event of one, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is ready with 10 airbags and a high-strength steel frame to counter the impact.
