Chevrolet Raises the Bar: 2020 Bolt EV to Offer Impressive 259 miles of Range

Detroit — The game-changing Chevrolet Bolt EV will now take customers even farther. Starting with model year 2020, the Bolt EV will offer a remarkable EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge1, a 21-mile increase over previous model years. The Chevrolet Bolt EV's winning combination of long range and affordability continues to attract new customers to the electric vehicle segment, and the 2020 Bolt EV will appeal to even more customers by allowing them to travel farther between charging sessions.

'The Bolt EV set the benchmark for long-range, affordable electric vehicles, and we're excited to raise the bar by offering nearly 10 percent more EPA-estimated range for the 2020 model year,' said Tim Grewe, director of Global Battery Cell Engineering and Strategy. 'At Chevrolet we're constantly listening to customer feedback and we heard the desire for more range. The team worked diligently to find ways to improve battery energy, giving customers the confidence to go more than the extra mile.'

To achieve this notable range increase, Chevrolet's battery engineering team improved the energy of the cell electrodes by making small but impactful changes to the cell chemistry. This innovative thinking allowed the team to implement the range increase without needing to change the physical battery pack and the way it is integrated into the vehicle structure.

2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV'The Chevrolet Bolt EV has been changing consumer perceptions of electric vehicles since its launch in 2016,' said Steve Majoros, director of Chevrolet Passenger Car and Crossover Marketing. 'Great range — now even more — is the foundation of the Bolt EV's success, and when paired with features like one-pedal driving, Regen on Demand and the instant torque of the EV motor, the vehicle delivers an exceptional driving experience. Chevrolet also is helping to encourage EV adoption by providing customers the necessary tools and services to make EV ownership more convenient.'

Currently original purchasers of new Bolt EVs have access to Chevrolet's exclusive Energy Assist feature through the myChevrolet mobile app2. Energy Assist allows customers to view and search for charging stations, plan a trip with multiple waypoints and charging stops, monitor their route, and receive alerts if their destination becomes unreachable. Last year, the myChevrolet mobile app2 was updated to enable smartphone projection of the Energy Assist feature to the vehicle's infotainment system via Apple CarPlay3 and Android Auto4 for drivers with model year 2017 or newer Bolt EVs.

Chevrolet recently announced a partnership with Qmerit that will enable EV owners a seamless way to find and obtain quotes from certified electricians to install at-home charging equipment. Chevrolet is the first non-luxury car brand to offer this service, and its partnership with Qmerit will provide customers with a more accessible at-home charging solution.


The 2020 Bolt EV will arrive in dealerships later this year with a starting MSRP of $37,495 (including destination and freight charges, excludes tax, title, license, dealer fees). Additional updates include two new exterior colors: Cayenne Orange Metallic (additional cost option) and Oasis Blue.
