Chevrolet increases Bolt EV range

The engineering team at Chevrolet has increased the battery range for the Bolt EV. Through small changes to the cell chemistry, the company has improved the energy of the cell electrodes.

This allowed the team to increase the range to 416km (258 miles) without needing to change the physical battery pack and the way it is integrated into the vehicle structure. The range increase represents a 33km (20 mile) increase over previous model years.

“The Chevrolet Bolt EV has been changing consumer perceptions of electric vehicles since its launch in 2016,” said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Passenger Car and Crossover Marketing.

“Great range is the foundation of the Bolt EV’s success, and when paired with features like one-pedal driving, regen on demand, and the instant torque of the EV motor, the vehicle delivers an exceptional driving experience.”
