The Chevrolet Bolt EV had its best first quarter ever in terms of sales. This is not only exciting for the electric car space, but also even more promising since Q1 2020 was impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Part of the increase in sales was thanks to GM's aggressive incentives on the all-electric hatch.

On the heels of the recent success, GM launched a new online video series called 'Bolt EV Academy.' Its goal is not only to assist new or prospective Bolt EV owners, but also to promote consumer interest in electric cars as a whole.

The series has a total of 15 videos. Each one is brief (1 to 2 minutes) and illustrates features, tips, and how-tos. GM says all the information is explained by the engineers who designed the Bolt EV:

The video series includes topics such as:

Home Charging Basics
Road Trip Charging
One Pedal Driving and Regen on Demand
Driver’s Display Screens
Personalizing Active Safety Features
Cold Weather Driving Tips
