Chevrolet Bolt EV
Spunky, affordable, high-tech and most of all, all-electric, the Chevrolet Bolt EV is the perfect complement for your city lifestyle, from everyday commuting to weekend adventures. The 2020 & 2021 Bolt EV gets around 417 km of electric range on a charge, also bringing along with it 1,603 L (56.6 cu-ft) of cargo space for all of your gear. The Battery and Electric Drive Components Limited Warranty spans 8 years/160,000 km to keep your Bolt covered for a long time. If you’re not too familiar with the Chevrolet Bolt EV, and want to get a bit more familiar with all its features and benefits, we’ve gathered some of its most important advantages for Gatineau drivers.
You charge devices all day, so what’s a vehicle on top of that to add to your lineup? It doesn’t take much more than you’d think to charge, so, yes, you can charge your Bolt with the same outlet you do your phone. Depending on how far you intend to drive each day, charging time can vary.
- Wall Outlets
- Level 1: This is your typical 120-volt 3-prong wall outlet, where every Bolt comes with a compatible portable charge cord.
- Level 2: This 240-volt wall outlet has 3 or 4 prongs, used many for large appliances. It delivers a faster charge, but it has to be bought separately and installed.
While you’re able to charge with your typical wall outlet, a 240-volt charging unit is recommended as both a fast and quick way to charge your vehicle. You can get up to 40 km per hour of charge, so if you drive around 64 km per day it takes less than 2 hours for your Bolt to get back that charge. No matter what way you charge, it’s incredibly simple and fits in with all your other electronics already at your house.
We understand the reticence of driving an electric vehicle in an area such as Gatineau where it gets cold often, and while the cold does affect the electric range (so does terrain and your driving type), there’s plenty you can do to combat it.
- Smart Cabin Heating (while plugged in): Make sure to use any energy from the grid to keep your Bolt’s cabin warm, so as to use the stored battery charge for driving. The 240-volt charging unit provides the ultimate benefit in ensuring you’re utilizing proper and max power charging ability.
- Tire Pressure: Keeping your tires properly inflated can help to improve your range.
- Staying Warm: Be smart about how you stay warm while driving. While you might think to heat the entire cabin, it takes less energy to heat yourself through the heated seats and steering wheel than the entire interior.
