On Tuesday, General Motors revealed the range of its Chevrolet Bolt EV, its first mass market, affordable, electric car.
The Bolt, which goes into production this year, will be able to drive 238 miles per charge, beating Tesla’s Model 3 range of 215 miles per charge. GM’s EV will go into production this year, also beating Tesla’s Model 3 to market. The Model 3 is slated to go into production in late 2017.
The Bolt will price at about $30,000 after a $7,500 federal tax credit and will have a top speed of 91 miles per hour. While that’s impressive on its own, the vehicle also has a number of other impressive features that make it much more appealing.
We had a chance to test drive the Bolt EV at CES in January with Stuart Norris, one of the Bolt’s designers. Norris walked us through some of the car’s best tech and design features.
The main display, which is customizable, serves as the control center for most functions inside the vehicle.
“We really want the driver to live in this screen, so they’ve always got a little bit of the information that they want to have,” Norris said.
There’s also two USB ports in the console so you can plug in your smartphone to connect to Apple CarPlay or Android Auto.
Chevrolet’s mobile app lets drivers check on the vehicle’s charge, remotely start their car, and pre-condition the cabin, among other things. The car’s key fob also uses Bluetooth for keyless entry and ignition.
