What Is the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV?
With a future-is-now approach, Chevrolet's all-electric Bolt EV hatchback delivers 238 miles of range on a full charge, according to the EPA, which should go a long way toward eliminating the kind of range anxiety drivers experience in electric cars with shorter driving ranges. Unlike the Chevrolet Volt, which has a small range-extending gas engine, the five-seat Bolt EV is a battery-electric car that offers optional DC fast charging in addition to 120- and 240-volt charging. Competitors include the Nissan Leaf, Hyundai Ioniq Electric, Volkswagen e-Golf and Tesla Model 3.

Should I Buy the 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV?
The Bolt EV is a good step forward in the development of electric vehicles that are affordable for average car shoppers. The car offers plenty of driving range on a full charge, plus hatchback utility with its 56.6 cubic feet of maximum cargo room. Ride quality is a bit busier than the competition, but the car accelerates quickly. The Bolt EV is eligible for a federal tax credit, but it's already begun to phase out, so be sure to check the schedule before buying.
