Small but impactful changes to the cell chemistry of the Chevrolet Bolt allow the range to increase without needing to change the physical battery pack.
The game-changing Chevrolet Bolt EV will now take customers even further. Starting with model year 2020, the Bolt EV will offer a remarkable EPA-estimated 407km of range on a full charge, a 34km increase over previous model years.
Chevrolet is confident that the practicality and affordability of the Bolt will continue to attract new customers to the electric car The Chevrolet Bolt EV's winning combination of long-range practicality and affordability continues to attract new customers to the electric vehicle segment, and the 2020 Bolt EV will appeal to even more customers by allowing them to travel further between charging sessions.
To achieve this notable range increase, Chevrolet's battery engineering team improved the energy of the cell electrodes by making small but impactful changes to the cell chemistry.
This innovative thinking allowed the team to implement the range increase without needing to change the physical battery pack and the way it is integrated into the vehicle structure.
The 2020 Bolt EV will arrive in U.S dealerships later this year with a starting manufacturer's suggested retail price of $52,000. Additional updates also include two new exterior colours: Cayenne Orange Metallic and Oasis Blue.
