While the Chevy Bolt has been a game changer thanks to its 200+ mile range and more accessible price, there are some draw backs, like its cheap feeling interior. If you don’t need to travel 200 miles in one day or maybe even two days, there may be some better options available, like the 2017 Volkswagen e-Golf.
