Tesla may have made the long-range electric car sexy, but GM is the first company to make one affordable. The 2018 Chevrolet Bolt EV features a big 60-kWh battery pack giving the Bolt an impressive 238-mile range on a single charge. As most people only commute between 30 and 50 miles a day, the Bolt could easily replace a gasoline-powered car in every area save long-distance travel. The Bolt’s on-board 7.2 kW charger allows for quick overnight charging from a 240-volt outlet, and can store up enough juice to drive about 50 miles in just two hours. The Bolt’s versatile size is on par with the new Nissan Leaf, and a bit more versatile than the more expensive BMW i3.
