Get That Used Used Chevrolet Bolt You've Been Wanting
See Why So Many Shoppers Buy From Charlie Clark Nissan El Paso
The Chevrolet Bolt is a battery-powered electric subcompact hatchback that is Chevy's headliner for affordable electric vehicles. The Bolt started in 2017 and has seen slight updates year over year, with the most considerable redesign happening with the 2022 model year. Used Chevy Bolts make great used EVs and are an inexpensive introduction for you to transition from gas-powered to electric vehicles. With their short production time, the Bolt models are all incredibly similar regarding range, build quality, and price, making comparison relatively easy. So, what can you expect, and is a used Chevy Bolt right for you?
Chevy Bolt Performance And Battery
The Chevy Bolt is powered by a lithium-ion battery that can deliver up to 200 horsepower in the most recent models. Its range varies slightly, with older generation (2017-2021) models reaching an EPA-estimated 238 miles and second-gen (2022-Current) models getting 247-259 miles, making only a slight disparity in distance traveled over the vehicle's lifetime. While the range may not make a significant difference, the charge times may be worth considering.
Chevrolet seems to have designed the Bolt to be primarily a commuter car. Older models of the Bolt have a charge time of around 9.5 hours for 10-90% battery. The slow charging makes it great to charge overnight, but not very suitable for long-distance road trips. The second generation of the Bolt is estimated to have a 220v charge time of around 7.5 hours, making it a bit easier to charge in a single night fully. However, newer Bolts are more suitable for long-distance travel, unlike the older models. While some specialty models of the 2017-2021 run can support fast DC charging, only the post-2022 models have the support natively, allowing 100 miles of range to be charged in as little as thirty minutes. Although DC fast charging comes at a considerable price, the most efficient and cost-effective method for recharging your Bolt will be with the at-home power cord.
Performance in the Chevy Bolt is its one major downside. Despite its peppy electric motor and small size, it fails to deliver the athletic and exhilarating drive of the pricer luxury EVs. However, if a competent and inexpensive commute with a nearly silent electric vehicle is what you are looking for, the Bolt may be the right fit.
Chevy Bolt Pricing
While used prices vary and tend to go down with the age of the vehicle, the most noteworthy selling point of the Bolt is that it is incredibly inexpensive. Brand new, fully loaded, premier trim Chevy Bolts are selling for a maximum of $33,000, with baseline models retailing for just over $27,000. Used Chevy Bolts are considerably cheaper and are competitive with other traditional gas-powered vehicles of the same model year. Further, thanks to its electrically powered engine, the Chevy Bolt saves you money in the long run. With gas prices eternally on the rise, it has never been a better time to jump into the EV market, and a used Chevy Bolt will be the most cost-effective way to do so.
