Lunar Rover Technology Used on Chevrolet Electric Vehicles

OKEMOS, Mich., – Almost 50 years ago, General Motors engineers constructed electric vehicle technology to help create the Lunar Rover used to explore the moon with 15 other astronauts. Today, Lunar Rover technology used on Chevrolet electric vehicles has helped the new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV excel as one of the leading electric vehicles of its kind. You can enjoy the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV with all the benefits of the Lunar Rover as well as a few extra bells and whistles.

Looking closely at the features of both vehicles, the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is built on the same foundation that the iconic Lunar Rover used to explore the surface of the earth. As one of the first electric vehicles of its kind, the Lunar Rover could receive up to 57 miles per charge, with a top speed of 8.7mph and a .25 horsepower engine. The Chevy Bolt EV, on the other hand, receives up to 238 miles per charge, with a 200 horsepower engine and a top speed of 92 mph. The past 50 years have allowed Chevrolet to upgrade the revolutionary technology the Lunar Rover offered, providing its groundbreaking features at an affordable rate available to consumers. 

"Starting at an MSRP of $37,495 before federal tax incentives of up to $7,500 depending upon individual tax situation, the 2017 Bolt EV offers an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a single charge. Standard features include electronic precision shift, one-pedal driving, Regen on Demand™ steering wheel paddle, 10.2-inch-diagonal color touchscreen and an 8 year/100,000 mile battery and propulsion system limited warranty (whichever comes first, see dealer for details). The top-trim Premier model adds leather-appointed seats, front and rear heated seats, Surround Vision Camera, Rear Camera Mirror and more."
