when Chevrolet announced the 238 mile range for those Bowl TV’s they called it a game-changer and it was really difficult to argue that the 238-mile point was enough to complete the job and almost all situations apart from some serious long-distance driving but that was only if it really what he said was really good. let’s find out this week I will see if the 2018 Chevrolet bolt evie is everything that people say now is to test that we will load the bolt with two dog dudes and a few teeth and go to Mount Diablo it’s about 40 miles drive followed by climbing 17 miles that have to do a big job drain some electrons. if everything goes well we should be able to make it there without having to refill as well I have driven it for more than a week and I have never refilled so let’s see how we are ready, let’s go this is the main trip that is more expensive than two trims offered by $ 4,300 but you can enter the base of the LT 437 495 and you will get an xenon lamp and the illuminated LED lights will get keyless entry and ignition and automatic climate control. Plus this 10.2-inch touch screen that runs a special version of Chevy MyLink and it’s also present.
with Android auto and apple carplay which is very important because there is no navigation available otherwise but the cool part is the energy page. here you can see exactly how much energy you have used how many miles you have traveled and what uses all your energy You even have three available themes that you can choose and we will check back here as we go to see exactly how we do with regard to energy use there are now not many options for LT but you can bundle it with a $ 555 comfort and convenience package. for an automatic heated front seat that reflects the rear view and a heated leather steering wheel and it is necessary to add to the $ driver trust package The 495 gives you a blind spot monitor with rear traffic and rear parking sensors but this comes with all of that and adds a heated rear seat leather interior ambient roof rails and a top down camera system that is worth three grand. others may not unless you live somewhere cold because with no ventilation and rear passengers can get a little cold honestly I might just stick with the LT trim and I don’t even know that I have added one of the packages I mean this is a pretty car It’s easy to look out for the most part and that makes many safety systems just unnecessary and the extra luxury you get.
with a package of comfort and comfort or by jumping to the premiere trim and that won’t convince you that your back apart from the Chevy there is only too much hard plastic around and the adjustment of the seats just feels too cheap and brittle and talks about their seats not long enough or wide enough or has strengthened or really It’s quite comfortable now not to say that I’m not impressed with the bolt because I’m fun to drive even a little sporty with a 60 hour under-floor battery that gives the equivalent of 200 horsepower and 266 pounds of foot. the meaning of bolt torque jumped to 60 miles per hour in just six and a half seconds and there was nothing like the instant roar of electric torque and all the weights under the floor which meant that it was felt to be planted even though the long and independent Skinny Michelin Energy Saver. Tire bearings are only very easily pushed to their limits and it can be a little bouncy over rough terrain, only the steering wheel is fortunately really well sorted, Chevy has done a good job with their electric steering lately and they deserve praise so let’s talk about the energy driving to Mount Diablo is about the worst conditions you can create for the bolt.
The speed is still high followed by a continuous ascent of the only thing that can make it worse if it’s cold outside because while the AC doesn’t do much to drain the battery one hundred degrees here today we already have air conditioning in all the hot time it will kill it quickly but there things you can do to reduce losses if you drop it into low gear on this very awkward voter. here you will basically have one driving pedal like the one you have with i3 or a new leaf and that means the engine breaks itself so it really doesn’t need a brake pedal other than an emergency stop situation and in stop-and-go traffic and on a trip shorter ones. i really get some energy than lose now there is a paddle shifter behind the wheel here that can do the same thing if you want to save it in ordinary driving mode but i just keep it in the lower gear calling me a traditionalist when it comes time to charge reset your bolt, you have several choices using a traditional outlet and it will take a little time if you go home at 8pm.
