The All-Electric Chevy Bolt EV Proves a Point Against Volkswagen

While your average enthusiast will tell you that a car needs good ol’ gasoline to be high-performing, the all-electric Chevy Bolt EV has a surprise in store for those fossil fuel fanboys.

The all-electric Chevy Bolt EV went head-to-head against the Volkswagen Golf GTI in a series of three races, delivering a true whooping to the VW in two out of three bouts. One race ended with a win for the Golf GTI by the skin of its teeth, but only because of a faulty start by the Bolt.

 

The Volkswagen Golf GTI is well-known for being a sprightly little hatchback with a lot more “oomph” than meets the eye, but that golden-child reputation didn’t help it much in this battle with the Bolt. The Chevy Bolt EV is as striking as its name implies, with impressive features such as 238 miles on a single charge and the Electronic Precision Shift gear system.*

 

If you’ve had that anti-electric attitude about the Bolt before, it’s time to take a look at this hot little hatchback with new eyes. It’s proving itself with its high-performance left-and-right, even being named the Motor Trend “Car of the Year” for 2017.

 

The Chevy Bolt EV is rated with 200 horsepower and 266 lb-ft of torque, going from 0-60 in about 6.5 seconds. Pretty significant numbers for a car that guzzles zero gas! Stop by or give us a call at DeLillo Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Bolt EV.

You’ve Been in an Accident — Now What?

You can never fully anticipate a car accident, but you can be prepared for one. After you’ve been in an accident, there are a few things you should do to make the follow-up as simple and stress-free as possible.

  1. Pause and take a deep breath. Staying calm is very important.
  2. Check yourself for injuries first, and then assess your passengers. If you’re unsure about anyone’s injuries, call an ambulance. This is absolutely one of those situations in which the phrase “better safe than sorry” applies.
  3. Turn on your hazard lights.
  4. In the case of a minor accident, move the involved vehicles to a safer place, away from traffic. In high-volume areas, there is often a nearby crash investigation site, which will allow emergency officials to get to you quicker and easier.
  5. Call the police for any sort of accident.
  6. Call your insurance agent to report any sort of accident.

 

After you’ve been in an accident, things can rush at you pretty quickly, so let us reiterate step one: stay calm. You’ll find it more helpful to yourself and all those involved in the accident if you can keep an even keel.
