Many Americans have a hard time picturing life without a gasoline-powered vehicle. There’s absolutely no denying the internal combustion engine offers convenience at almost every intersection: a fueling station.
However, one North Bend, Oregon family cut ties with gasoline and purchased not one, but two 2017 Chevrolet Bolt EVs. They sent their story to Green Car Reports, and it tells an overwhelmingly positive tale.
Not only does the family have zero issues charging both Bolt EVs—they use a regular 120-volt outlet in their garage or take advantage of a handful of level 2 stations—they’ve found it’s an incredibly practical vehicle for life’s daily happenings.
The Bolt EV’s small footprint means it fits in plenty of places, but the cargo room fits everything from the kids’ sports gear, to suitcases, to musical instruments for various extracurriculars undertaken.
As for the driving experience, it’s been pleasant as well, according to the family’s notes. One pedal driving is now the norm (thanks, regenerative braking!) and the interior components and infotainment system are laid out ergonomically.
Overall, the family says “so far, so great” regarding its pair of Bolt EVs. It will be interesting to hear more stories like this as the Bolt EV rolls out nationwide at the end of the summer.
