The demand for eco-friendly and efficient electric vehicles has dramatically increased in recent years — and helping lead the way is the Chevrolet Bolt EV, with its state-of-the-art electric powertrain, high-level efficiency, and impressive range.

2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV Range

This is an increase in range of 21 miles over the 2019 Bolt EV and a higher range than the base-level Tesla Model 3.

The impressive range can be credited to refinements made to the battery of the Bolt EV, with changes to the battery cell chemistry, resulting in an improved energy output of the battery cell electrodes. Another benefit of improving the range by focusing on the cell chemistry is that no changes were needed for the physical battery pack and how it is positioned in the car.
