2018 Bolt Trims & Features

Creating an airy open feel, there's panoramic visibility thanks to the large greenhouse and the Bolt's' SUV-like upright seating. Chevy designers utilized a floating instrument panel for cross-vehicle spaciousness and maximized front knee room. Bolt cabins provide 94.4 cubic feet of passenger space, which is more than the 93.1-cu.ft. Toyota Prius cabin. The 10.2-inch diagonal screen is a capacitive touch system. You can use the connected center console for charging your phone and storing your tablet. The rear seat is roomy thanks to thin-frame front seats and other clever engineering tricks to squeeze out every cube of possible space. Metallic white decorative trim glows with blue ambient lighting. When it's time to load, drivers will appreciate the full-width opening that makes it easy to slide boxes into the hold. The hold is rated for 16.9 cubic feet, and a split-fold rear seat is standard. LT editions have push button start, automatic climate control, and rear heat ducts The standard Chevy MyLink Radio is supplemented by dual USB ports and steering wheel-mounted duplicate controls. Premier editions have heated front and rear seats as well as a heated leather-clad steering wheel. A false cargo floor gives you a storage area for valuables. You can add a Bose seven-speaker system, dual rear USB ports, and ambient lighting. In either trim, OnStar also lets you turn the vehicle into a traveling hotspot for your passengers' smart devices.

Chevy Bolt Horsepower & Torque

2018 Chevrolet Bolt FrontBolt drivers command 200 horsepower and 266 lb.-ft. of torque. This allows it to zoom from zero to sixty mph in 6.5 seconds. There's no gas engine needed. The electric motor does its job with the help of a 60 kWh lithium battery pack. Weight is perfectly distributed by spreading the battery pack in five seconds across the length of the Bolt's floor. Another clever space saver is the by-wire shifter, which eliminates bulky parts and permits engineers to find more cabin space. Regenerative braking captures energy and uses it to power the car. The DC Fast Charging system has a standard SAE Combo connector and can restore 90 miles of range with a 30-minute charge. With the MyChevrolet Mobile App, owners can check the vehicle's charge status, start the vehicle remotely, and pre-condition the cabin temperature. You have peace of mind knowing the battery has an eight-year/100,000-mile warranty in addition to the five-year powertrain coverage.
