2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV Nominated for Green Car of the Year

DURAND, Mich., –– Chevrolet's new all-electric vehicle, the 2017 Bolt EV, has been nominated for the Green Car Journal's Green Car of the Year award. This prestigious award is given each year by Green Car Journal, an eco-conscious automotive magazine, to the vehicle that best embodies efficiency, affordability and overall environmental achievement. The 2017 Bolt EV named among four other finalists and the winner will be announced at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 17th.

The 2017 Bolt's record-setting electric range, an EPA estimated 238 miles, was one of its chief reasons for being nominated as it is the first production electric vehicle to achieve a 200-plus mile driving range. Chevrolet is also aiming to repeat as the title holder, the 2016 Chevrolet Volt won the Green Car of the Year at last year's convention. The Green Car of the Year is selected through a majority vote by an esteemed jury that includes multiple industry leaders and celebrity auto enthusiast Jay Leno.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is designed to be exceptionally aerodynamic and light weight to help its electric motor be as productive as possible. For example, due to having an electric battery motor, the 2017 Bolt does not require air that a conventional motor needs for combustion so the underbody of the car is able to be enclosed and thus more aerodynamic. It doesn't lack style though, as it's expressive proportions and body lines offer a solid, robust stance on the road. The battery's positioning even allows for a flat floor and increased spaciousness in the interior.

The Bolt's 238-mile range allows for five times the mileage needed for the average daily commute of 40 miles. This means you could potentially go multiple of days without having to charge the battery, if you so choose.

Additional features include:
  • Electronic precision shift 
  • Michelin self-sealing tires 
  • 17" painted aluminum wheels 
  • 10.2-inch diagonal color touch-screen 
  • Rear vision camera 
General Motors and Chevrolet are committed to advancing eco-friendly automotive technology and are proud of their achievement, earning back to back nominations. With the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV being nominated for Green Car of the Year, they hope that another victory after last year's triumph with the 2016 Volt will serve as major step forward in their mission to bring affordable and capable eco-friendly vehicles to the public.
