Of the three Chevrolets listed as contenders (2016 Chevrolet Cruze and 2016 Chevrolet Volt, too), the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV is by far the game changer of the pack. Motor Trend even went on to say the Bolt EV would be a fantastic vehicle without the full electric propulsion system
The 2017 Bolt EV was lauded for its fun-to-drive characteristics, bar-setting range, interior spaciousness and more affordable price point. However, the lack of a charging network was a peg against the Bolt EV.
The Motor Trend Car of the Year winner will be announced on November 14, 2016.
