General Motors is halting production of the Chevy Bolt EV after a number of battery fires prompted a massive recall that has already cost the company nearly $2 billion. The automaker won’t resume making the 2022 Bolt and Bolt EUV until at least mid-September.
GM, one of the pioneers of the electric car, is in an odd predicament: it has no new battery-powered vehicles to sell. With sales of all Chevy Bolts stopped due to battery fire risk and production of the Bolt halted, anyone looking for a new GM electric vehicle is out of luck.
What about the Chevy Bolt’s perfect reliability rating from Consumer Reports? The Chevy Bolt EV has long been Consumer Reports’ favorite electric ar. From 2017 through 2020, Consumer Reports gave this subcompact EV a perfect reliability score of 5/5, while owner satisfaction never dropped below 4/5.
Fastest electric cars: 0-60s Audi RS E-tron Quattro – 3.1sec. Tesla Model 3 – 3.1sec. Lotus Evija – ‘under 3.0sec’ Nio EP9 – 2.7sec. Porsche Taycan Turbo S – 2.6sec.
While some dealers thought that GM would be buying back some of the faulty Bolt EV and Bolt EUVs, that’s not the case. In a statement to Car and Driver, a GM spokesperson stated that buybacks aren’t really happening.
No, you can only charge Tesla cars at Tesla Superchargers and Destination Chargers. Superchargers verify the car’s Tesla account. The plug on both types of Tesla chargers won’t fit the Bolt.

The Chevy Bolt is estimated to last between 300,000 400,000 miles before significant battery degradation affects its range and performance.
A DC fast-charging station usually costs about $2.66 for the same range. Torque News says new Chevy Bolt owners can expect to spend about $7 to $8 to charge a 60-kWh battery at home. That’s based on an average cost of home electricity used, calculated at around 13.27 cents per kWh.
The problem: The vehicle’s batteries may catch fire. The fix: There is both a hardware replacement and a software update to correct the battery problem. GM will replace all modules in 2017-2019 Bolt EVs and will replace defective modules in 2020-2022 Bolt EV/EUVs.
With an operating range at 238 miles on a charge, the Chevrolet Bolt EV maintains a higher resale value than the above models at a respectable 41.0% of its original worth.

In the nascent phase of production, the base X 60D went from zero to sixty in 6 seconds and had a top speed of 130mph. Now, the base 2021 Tesla Model X will go from zero to sixty in 3.8 seconds and reach a top speed of 155mph. As these specs are highly impressive, there is yet an even more powerful trim above the base.
With electric cars, the emf available is limited by the battery emf. So, when the car reaches the maximum speed possible with the available emf, the speed can no longer be increased. Even before the maximum speed is reached, the power will drop off because of the limited available emf.

The Chevy Volt is a unique hybrid electric car that runs off of both gas and electric power. It has a battery that is capable of running the entire car. … Only after it runs out of battery power will it switch to using the gas reserves.
Like the Chevy Spark EV and Volt, the Bolt EV uses the SAE Combined Charging Connector (CCS) for level 3 DC fast charge. DC fast charging is typically available at public charging stations such as in an office or a shopping mall parking lot.
The Chevy Bolt EV accepts the universal connector on every standard Level 2 charging station, which adds about 25 miles of Range Per Hour.
Level 3 charging is the fastest type of charging available and can recharge an EV at a rate of 3 to 20 miles of range per minute. Unlike Level 1 and Level 2 charging that uses alternating current (AC), Level 3 charging uses direct current (DC).
The Bolt is all-electric, with no hybrid options to get things confused, and with no engine under the hood, that also means that the car will never require an oil change.
In the case of the Bolt EV, you’ll never need a single drop of fuel. Instead, you’ll be charging the battery with electricity to add miles to your range. To compare the cost of an electric vehicle to traditional gas-powered cars, take a look at how much it costs to charge a Chevy Bolt.
