CHEVROLET BOLT EV IS MOTOR TREND CAR OF THE YEAR  LOS ANGELES – MOTOR TREND has recognized the Chevrolet Bolt EV — the all-new affordable electric vehicle offering an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range on a full charge — as its 2017 Car of the Year®.

The editors based their selection on the Bolt EV's performance in six evaluation categories: advancement in design, engineering excellence, efficiency, safety, value and performance of intended function.

'Chevrolet is the fastest-growing full-line retail brand in the industry thanks to an exceptional vehicle lineup, which includes ground-breaking products like the Bolt EV,' said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and Global Chevrolet brand chief. 'Being recognized once again as MOTOR TREND Car of the Year is a reat honor for the entire Chevrolet team.'

It is the fourth MOTOR TREND award for Chevrolet in three years, with the Camaro recognized as the 2016 Car of the Year and Colorado named the 2015 and 2016 Truck of the Year.

'Chevrolet is on a roll with new and compelling vehicles that have reset the bar for trucks in 2015, trucks and sports cars in 2016, and for 2017, electric cars,' said Ed Loh, MOTOR TREND Editor-in-Chief. 'The Bolt EV is certainly a game changing vehicle and we look forward to seeing whether we'll be recognizing another Chevrolet next year in our annual awards.'
