Chevy Bolt EV Provides a Fun Autocross Experience

OKEMOS, Mich.,–– Autocross is a timed competition where drivers navigate through traffic cones to showcase their driving skills and the vehicle's handling in a safe, monitored, and controlled environment. The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV may not seem like the type of vehicle that isn't fit for this type of competition, but the smaller size, hatchback body style, and surprising speed make it a great competitor. The Chevy bolt EV provides a fun autocross experience to first-timers as well as veterans who want to blaze through the course with impressive times.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV's 60 kWh lithium ion battery pack allowing the vehicle to go from zero to 60 MPH in just 6.5 seconds. The vehicle also puts out an impressive 266 lb-ft of torque that makes the Bolt's little wheels squeal on the pavement when the pedal is put to the metal, but that's about all you'll hear - the lack of revving may seem a little out of place at an autocross competition. However, speed and power don't necessarily determine a driver's success at an autocross event. The Bolt EV's batteries, located low and directly on the chassis, allow this hatch to remain steady through the tight curves and turns on an autocross course.

The best part about the 2017 Bolt EV? Even after three hours of autocrossing, you'll still have more than enough battery life to get home. The Bolt EV carries an average of 238 miles of electric range in driving. You can drive the Chevy Bolt EV slow, fast, or anywhere in between and still receive an efficient and mileage-minded drive! According to Chevrolet, the Bolt EV's battery range is perfect for the average commute to and from work and provides more than enough mileage to get drivers through an autocross event.

"If Chevrolet was using this autocross to change the conversation around electric cars, it has succeeded. Where EVs used to have a singular purpose of making every electron count, the Bolt EV does that all while being fun and not being so quirky and strange that it draws unwelcome judgment and confused looks (hello, Prius). The Chevrolet Bolt EV could be the electric car that leads to broader adoption: It’s green, practical, actually affordable, comfortable, versatile, and, as I learned during the autocross, it can perform." - Jodi Lai, AutoGuide
