Chevrolet Bolt EV Recharged for 2017

DURAND, Mich., – The new Chevrolet Bolt EV has been recharged for 2017 and will now offer drivers the ability to potentially stop the vehicle without using the brake pedal. This type of braking system is referred to as regenerative braking or “regen” braking. Although this driving method does not eliminate the need to use the brake pedal completely, this progressive form of brake system will increase energy efficiency.

This form of braking in electric vehicles is a way to save energy by redirecting unused energy back to the engine. This method is also referred to as one-pedal driving. Owners of the 2017 Bolt EV will have four different modes to choose from when engaging in one-pedal driving:

  • Operating in Drive and easing off the accelerator
  • Operating in Drive and using the new Regen on Demand paddle on the steering wheel
  • Operating in Low and easing off the accelerator
  • Operating in Low and using the Regen on Demand paddle

Throughout testing, engineers discovered that using one-pedal driving methods can increase range by up to 5 percent and provide 200 miles on the Bolt EV. It seems to us like the newest Chevrolet Bolt EV has been recharged for 2017!
