Chevy Bolt wins Green Car of the Year – CNN Money
At an estimated price of $30,000 after tax breaks, the plug-in Bolt will be less than half the price of the only other cars that can go more than 200 miles on a single charge — the Tesla Model S and Model X. The Bolt can go 238 miles on a charge.
Chevy Bolt wins 2017 Green Car of the Year – Autoblog
We knew that a plug-in vehicle was going to win the 2017 Green Car of the Year award this year, given that all five finalists have a way to charge up. And when Ron Cogan, the editor and publisher of Green Car Journal, announced the winner – the 2017 Chevy Bolt EV – he said that the car itself represents one of those times in the auto industry when everything is about to change.

Chevrolet delivered its first three Bolt vehicles on Wednesday. The $35,000 car is the first affordable electric vehicle with Tesla-like battery range.

Tesla Motors’ future is wrapped up in the company’s promise to deliver an affordable electric vehicle. That’s why investors and consumers are so eager to see the company’s Model 3, its $35,000 electric sedan.
But that car is still a ways off. In the meantime, Chevrolet’s own affordable electric vehicle is officially available. Chevy-parent General Motors announced on Wednesday that it had delivered its first three Bolt cars, a $37,000 electric vehicle that matches up well with the Tesla 3, minus, perhaps, the cool styling. (Chevy advertises the price as $30,000 thanks to a $7,500 federal tax credit.)
The Bolt has already received raves from critics.
