2017 Chevrolet Bolt Fine Print
New information has been posted to the site and we now get a look at the fine print for range, MSRP and charging time.
Usually, the fine print hides all sorts of disclaimers, but that’s not the case with the 2017 Bolt.
Above we see range, price and charging time, but not there’s a few small numbers which point us to the fine print. Here’s the fine print:
The most revealing info is the charge time – 9 hours at 32-amps (7.7 kW). Definitely helps us narrow down our battery capacity guesses.
Additionally, 9 hours at 25 miles of range added per hour would work out to 225 miles of range (not allowing for a taper), which seems to be the approximate figure General Motors is shooting for in saying more than 200 miles of range.
Furthermore, if you listen to Bolt product manager Darin Gesse explain range here, the indication seems to be that, in moderate temps, the Bolt will achieve well over 200 miles on a single charge.
