In the past three years, Chevrolet has earned four awards from Motor Trend. The latest is the Motor Trend Car of the Year award for the all-new 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV. The other three awards were for Car of the Year in 2016 for the Camaro and Truck of the Year in 2015, and 2016 for the Colorado.

“Chevrolet is on a roll with new and compelling vehicles that have reset the bar for trucks in 2015, trucks and sports cars in 2016, and for 2017, electric cars,” said Ed Loh, Motor Trend Editor-in-Chief. “The Bolt EV is certainly a game changing vehicle and we look forward to seeing whether we’ll be recognizing another Chevrolet next year in our annual awards.”

The Bolt EV earned this year’s award because it performed exceptionally well in six evaluation categories: engineering excellence, advancement in design, value, efficiency, safety, and performance of intended function.

With the Bolt EV, the electric car segment will get a great, game-changing addition. It will deliver an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge. In addition, it will be available across the country and has an affordable starting price of $37,495. Many customers may qualify for a federal tax credit of up to $7,500, making it even more affordable.

The 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will be available here at DeLillo Chevrolet by the end of this year.
