Design of Chevy Bolt
Bluetooth low-energy - designed specifically for the Bolt EV to minimize energy draw - seamlessly connects a smart phone to the car while the owner approaches the vehicle. Many of the Bolt EV's driver-focused technologies are supported by OnStar 4G LTE, which turns the Bolt EV into a Wi-Fi hotspot, giving owners easier access to apps and services via a high-speed wireless connection. Seats easily fold down for 56.6 cu. ft. of flexible cargo volume†. Thanks to 60/40 split-folding rear seats, you'll have the flexibility to transport larger-shaped items whenever you need. Also provides additional space when you need it while keeping your cargo organized, easily accessible and neatly stowed away.
By learning your every move, Bolt EV helps keep efficiency at its peak. Want to know how much energy you've used? There's a screen for that. Valuable information like your battery levels, range estimation, charge settings and climate controls is readily available on the standard 10.2-inch diagonal center display screen and 8-inch diagonal driver cluster. Helping protect you is an important job. And helping you prevent collisions is a big part of that. Bolt EV offers a number of ingenious radar- and camera-based systems designed around the vehicle - from front to back and on both sides. In other words - Bolt EV has the technology available that can help make driving safer. The available 240-volt charging unit is the fastest way to recharge your battery at home and offers more power than a 120-volt outlet.
