Even if you don’t reside on the west coast, where the 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EV will initially launch this year, that shouldn’t stop you from paying a visit to Chevrolet’s official website to build your own Bolt EV.
Yes, that’s right, the brand has brought the official configurator online for potential owners, or just EV perusers, to check out and click a few option boxes. It’s not the most exciting configurator in the world since there aren’t that many options to be had with the Bolt EV, but nevertheless, it’s here.
There are two trim options for the Bolt EV, the base LT trim and the Premier. Selecting the Premier trim grants you goodies such as 17-inch painted aluminum wheels, a leather wrapped and heated steering wheel, Surround Vision and various other active safety features. The Premier also starts at a few thousand dollars more, ringing in at $41,780. For a reminder, the Bolt EV starts at $37,495 in LT trimmings.
The only important option many should consider is the DC fast charging capability, which is $750. If the Opel Ampera-e is any benchmark, the Bolt EV should be able to replenish over 90 miles of charge in just 30 minutes via a fast charger.Otherwise, charge times are going to be a tad lengthy.
