That may change with the launch of the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV, an all-new, all-electric vehicle.
For all the talk about the electric car (EV), it remains a niche vehicle.
At the launch event that I attended, I didn’t get enough driving time to test Chevy’s 238-mile claimed EV range, but I drove long enough to see that significant range is certainly possible.
All-new from the ground up, the EV rides on a platform that was designed from the start to be all-electric.

as informed in (Without the Bolt charging regularly, I don’t qualify for any of the lease deals, and I don’t have the cash to buy solar panels outright.)
We haven’t been recording the times of day we’ve been charging the Bolt, so I’m going to present a cost range based on both rates.
In total, we’ve spent $57.44 on public chargers so far at an average cost of $6.38 per charge.
Add that all up, and a full charge would cost me $12.00 each day I charge it ($11.00 just for the Bolt).
The longest trip made on a single charge is 205 miles, but on average, we charge the car every 80 miles or so.
Short Report: 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV

If, however, you are prepared to dive into electric car ownership without qualms, the new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is a brilliant solution to both affordability and real-world utility.
Still, compared to most gas-fueled compact vehicles, the Bolt EV requires you to pay a pretty steep premium.
Using a standard household outlet, it takes almost 60 hours to fully charge a completely depleted Bolt EV battery.
