Ever had a car give you Rockstar vibes?
Well, that’s exactly the energy I felt in the super groovy 2020 Chevy Bolt EV.
During National Drive Electric Week, I got to take this energetic little compact on an adventure around town. Lemme tell ya… I had the most exhilarating experience e-v-e-r, and I was shocked to find that my spunky sidekick has way more energy than me! LOL
They say that “big things come in little packages” …well this cute-little-compact is one hip head turner that doesn’t shy away from big adventures. Wanna be noticed?… No problem. Not only is the Chevy Bolt EV showstopping stylish, but it comes in 9 electric colors that makes any commute an instant attention grabber. My Bolt (or “Bolt Bae” as I called her) was Kinetic Blue Metallic which matched my personality perfectly. Bold. Fun. And oh-so Fabulous!
It’s Electric… Boogie Woogie Woogie!
If you haven’t heard the buzz about the 2020 Chevy Bolt EV… It’s electric! That’s right! The Bolt EV is COMPLETELY electric which means NO pit stops at the pump people!!! Wondering how to charge this precocious car? No problem! You can charge up at home using the standard 120-volt portable charge cord that plugs into any 3 hole outlet — or — simply use your smartphone with the myChevrolet Mobile App with Energy Assist to plan the most efficient routes and locate the nearby charging stations (over 40,000+ to be exact) so you can re-charge without the worry. AND, the Bolt EV gets around 259 miles on a full charge so any around town adventures won’t miss a single beat.
Get Up & Go…Green!
I bet you’re wondering how it performs on the road… Well, this baby is no slouch. I love, love, love that “Bolt Bae” is very reactive on the road. It may be small in stature but this baby handles the open road like a boss!!! The Chevy Bolt EV features all-around sensors + “bird’s eye” view cameras to help you steer clear of pesky hazards. Also, the on-board navigation is like having a personal assistant at your beckoning call… less the unnecessary latte runs, of course. 😉 The Bolt EV is super efficient and handles very nice + since it’s electric you’ll spend NO $$$ on gas (saving around $1,000/yr on fuel cost), LESS time and money on maintenance, and MORE time just having fun. Speaking of fun…
Plug & Play
Fact: I’m addicted to adventure. Full stop. It’s easy to spoil yourself when there’s so much to do, and “Michael Bolt-on” (nickname #2) was more than up to the task of getting me to my fave spots around town. Shopping was no sweat since I could easily fit the day’s haul in the spacious hatch. ♫ How did I ever live without you… ♫ 😉
Heading out for cocktails at The Garden Room, and brunching with your besties at Southern Belle is a bet since the Bolt EV easily accommodates 5 passengers. Not only is it roomy with a view but it’s the perfect “spark” for a conversation. 😉 Everywhere we went curious onlookers asked “What is that?” or, my favorite “Is that an electric car?” I thought you’d never ask! 😀
No trip around town is complete without some 80’s tunes to vibe out to, and the sound system on the Bolt EV is everything! Plus the 10.2-inch color touch-screen display gives you tons of real-time vehicle information, such as your battery levels, estimated range and charge settings. With lots of available USB ports throughout as well as hands-free features, you and your crew can stay connected to what’s happenin.
Check out “Bolt Bae” aka “Michael Bolt-on” aka 2020 Chevy Bolt EV and charge up your adventures! Just be prepared for all the extra attention you’ll get. After all, you’re a Rockstar, baby!!! 😉
