The Chevy Bolt electric car hasn’t even been on the market for a full year, but its owners have already racked up a cumulative 4,570,300 miles in the US. Since the Bolt went on sale late last year, Chevy has sold over 3,500 Bolt EVs and the over 4.5 million miles of gas free driving have resulted in more than 175,000 gallons of fuel saved.
“Our early Bolt EV customers are proving the crossover’s functionality, flexibility and long-range capabilities on a daily basis,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet cars and crossovers. “Chevrolet committed to delivering a game-changing vehicle and we’ve done just that. As we continue our national rollout of the Bolt EV, we’re making electric driving accessible to even more drivers.”
The Bolt has a driving range of 238 miles between charges, which beats out every other rival without a Tesla badge. The Bolt is currently available in California, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Washington and Virginia. If you live elsewhere in the country, you’ll be happy to hear that the Bolt EV will be available nationwide by summer 2017.
