2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV Review

 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV Review

2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV Review

The Bolt EV was a pioneer in environmentally responsible driving. It's back, and this time it's about money rather than technology.

Following a significant decrease in pricing the previous year, the 2023 Bolt EV sees another reduction of $5,900. The MSRP of the Bolt EV has decreased by around $11,000 since 2021. It beats out the Nissan Leaf as the most affordable electric vehicle in the United States.

That is wonderful news for the Bolt, which had been falling behind other electric vehicles that were more innovative. The Chevrolet Bolt was selected as our Car of the Year for 2017 due to its impressive driving range and affordable pricing. In 2022, the revised Bolt was unable to make it to the finals stage because to its antiquated architecture and low-quality materials.

If you're willing to spend about $30,000, you'll find it easier to overlook these deficiencies. In spite of its little dimensions, the Bolt manages to be both fascinating and useful. Despite its unconventional appearance, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is America's most viable option for a mass-produced electric vehicle.

Fuel Efficiency

The powertrain of the Bolt will be preserved. A 65-kWh battery sends 200 horsepower and 266 pound-feet of torque to the front wheels. A button in the center console activates the vehicle's one-pedal driving mode, which allows drivers to operate the vehicle without using the brakes. The vehicle can reach 60 miles per hour in 6.4 seconds.

We anticipate that the new Bolt EV will achieve a rating of 120 mpg-e from the EPA. According to Chevy, the EV has a range of 259 miles and a charge time of 7 hours using 240V. Both the Nissan Leaf and the basic model of the Tesla Model 3 have comparable performance figures.

Bolt EUV?

The Bolt EUV, which is essentially an extended and improved version of the Bolt EV, is its most formidable rival. In 2023, the EUV will have a price reduction of $6,300, bringing it in line with its younger sister.

After the price reduction, EUV still has a pricing premium of $1,600 above EV. This money will only get you an additional three inches of legroom in the back. Even though it is longer, the cargo capacity and headroom remain the same. The Bolt EUV features roof rails but has the same ground clearance as a sedan at only 5.6 inches.

There is also the option of utilizing GM's Super Cruise Level 2 autonomous driving technology on a variety of roads in North America. Only Bolt EUV can be used.


Both the IIHS and the NHTSA gave a favorable evaluation of the 2021 Bolt EV. Included as standard equipment are automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist, and automatic high-beam headlights. Parking sensors, blind-spot monitors, and an adaptive cruise control upgrade are available on the 2LT trim level.

Cargo Space in Addition to the Interior Room

The 2023 Bolt EV makes the most of the available space. In comparison to the Hyundai Kona Electric, the Bolt EV offers more space for both baggage and passengers.

The technological chevron

Every Bolt comes standard with a digital instrument display that measures 8.0 inches and an infotainment touchscreen that measures 10.2 inches. Wi-Fi as well as compatibility for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are also featured. The 2LT package comes standard with a surround-view camera, Bose audio, wireless charging, and USB ports for the second row of seats.

Trim Levels \schevron

The 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV will come in 1LT and 2LT trim levels. The reduction in pricing that took place this year resulted in upgrades to the 1LT's automatic temperature control, heated and operated side mirrors, and huge infotainment screen.

For an additional $3,200, the 2LT model comes with leather upholstery, front seats that are heated, a power-adjustable driver's seat, and a number of other technological and safety features. It is an alluring combination of bargain and comfort, and it costs just less than $30,000.
