electric cars are doing that each one of us is interested especially by their data. This is by the fact that it is a technology still in its infancy, which gives as a result that we want more and hopefully more. It is for this reason that the data exceeds any other interest by the car, an issue which occurs heavily in the new Chevrolet Bolt EV. Now that we know what offers converted into a product much more interesting.
several days Ago, the Bolt made an appearance and we are left with the image of an electric crossover loaded with technology, and with a look that he did not remember especially the rest of the iterations power in the market. Its only data, perhaps the most important, was his range of up to 320 kilometers in cycle EPA, a figure that in theory is more realistic than the european approval and quite loose fitting as to consider the purchase of an electric.
Now we know more, so much that it has become an option even more interesting. We know that the motor generates no less than 200 horse power. That is to say, we are talking about that is still more powerful than a BMW i3, for example close and comparable. In turn, it generates 360 Nm of torque from 0 rpm, another figure interesting for a car of a familiar and versatile.
Is a fast car, very fast. More than what the naked eye could seem to be. The Bolt EV is running the 0-100 km/h in less than 7 seconds. We talk about figures they get compact cars for over 200 horses. Without going any further, a Golf GTI with 220 horses makes the sprint in 6.5 seconds. In any case, everything and more of what you need the average user in their day-to-day.
these figures have to blame a team lithium-ion batteries with a 288 and 60 kWh of capacity. And here comes one of the main problems. The weight. Only the batteries already accounts for up to 435 kilos to add to the set. It’s not just performance, range or recharge times. Chevrolet has worked in the refrigeration and placed the same in the lower part to reduce to the maximum the center of gravity.
it is Precisely this last point leaves us with a few details such as your load quick, that in only a half-hour will provide us with 150 km of autonomy. Without going to load fast, the charged standard of 240 Volts will be able to cause us the car to do 80 miles in two hours. No, there has not been a great evolution, but taking into account the customer type you can charge it at home during the night, it is no longer a time of burden, especially taking into account the autonomy, quite respectable.
The Chevrolet Bolt EV has been presented these days in the Salon de Detroit, although it will arrive at dealers in autumn of this same year. We will not see in Europe after the disappearance of Chevrolet in the Old Continent. Not what we will see at least seal american, but no one tells us if could get a version with emblem Opel in Europe.
