Electric vehicles are the future of motoring. But at present, consumers have yet to be convinced. Range anxiety and expensive EV options aren’t doing the movement any favors. That’s where the Chevy EV Bolt has made a name for itself: by addressing the biggest problems facing EVs. Range? 238 miles on a full charge. Charge time? 9.5 hours — or a fantastic night’s sleep. But the Bolt’s biggest selling point is its price tag. At $38,000, the Bolt brings Tesla tech to the working man’s driveway.
