In late 2016, the Chevy Bolt became the first affordable long range EV (electric vehicle), beating the Tesla Model 3 to market. As of this writing, in February 2020, GM has once again moved the goal posts. You can now buy a Bolt for around $26,000, underselling every affordable EV you can buy in America and having a longer range than all of them. Is it worth it? Let’s take a look.
Bottom line: two thumbs up for GM, it EV future, and the 2020 Bolt. At $26,000, it’s going to be very hard for any car company to beat!
