2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Boasts 259-Mile Driving Range

2020 Bolt EV

Thanks to an improved battery, the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV can travel farther than ever on a single charge. Outpacing the 2019 model by 21 miles, the 2020 Bolt now boasts a driving range of 259 miles.

According to Chevrolet, the extra range comes from chemical changes made to the vehicle’s lithium-ion battery pack. This improved the Bolt’s range performance by 8 percent but didn’t change the size or weight of the battery assembly. The 200-horsepower electric motor is unchanged.

With these increased range numbers, the Bolt pulls just ahead of its competitors in the compact EV category. The Hyundai Kona Electric has been rated by the EPA at 258 miles per charge. The Kia Soul EV offers a 243-mile range, the Tesla Model 3 Standard Plus can travel 240 miles, and the Kia Niro EV gets 239 miles per charge.

Helping Bolt drivers get even more out of the vehicle’s boosted range, Chevrolet offers an Energy Assist feature through the myChevrolet smartphone app and Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto™ . This tool tracks charging stations, helps with trip and route planning, and issues alerts with range estimates.

The 2020 Chevrolet Bolt is expected to arrive at dealerships soon, and when it does, you can stop in at Lannan Chevrolet of Woburn for a test drive.
