We finally found out that the Bolt’s combined range rating is 238 miles and now we know what the city rating is thanks to CarScoops.
255 (410 km) miles is an impressive range for city drivers and the Bolt can travel that distance on one charge, it’s actually comparable to the Tesla Model S 75D which has a city rating of 242.8 miles (390 km) per charge. With a starting price of $37,495 the Bolt EV is also less than half the price of an S 75D. Also, Chevy says the city range can be increased up to 5% in traffic if driven using the Regen-On-Demand paddles. The city is where the Bolt shines but where it loses range is on the highway.
With a less than ideal drag coefficient of .32, the Bolt will only get 217.4 miles (349 km) of range on the highway but, with the decrease in range comes an increase in cargo and interior space. Owners will be able to cram a lot of luggage in the back for long road trips while still having ample space to seat passengers comfortably.
If you do manage to get the maximum amount of tax incentives, the Bolt EV can be purchased for just $29,995.
