On Sept. 22nd in the sunny streets of Venice, California, Chevy took over the appropriately named Electric Avenue to give the public a taste of the Eco-friendly attributes of electric power. Even though many consumers are generally familiar with the benefits of an electric vehicle, there are still many who have not yet driven one for themselves. The Bolt EUV and EV were the stars of the show as those who participated learned about the benefits of EV ownership, range, and home charging options fitted for their lifestyle.
There were also a few newly released EVs on display, as the 2024 Blazer EV and 2024 Equinox EV were present courtesy of Your Korean Dad star and EV connoisseur Nic Cho. The Bolt EV and EUV are fitting and cost-efficient options for any lifestyle, with the EV providing an EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge. Both models are offered with Chevy’s at-home charging installation promotion, and KBB.com has deemed the Bolt EV the “cheapest new electric car for sale in the United States.”
A car that is easy on the pocketbook is heavily in demand and holds a large amount of appeal within the EV segment. The 2023 Chevy Bolt features the Regen on Demand shift paddle beneath the steering wheel, and when it is set at the highest intensity of brake regeneration, the car will speed up or slow down based on how much pressure is applied to the accelerator.
During the stop and go of city driving, the Bolt EV handles amazingly smoothly, rides quietly, and still offers up bursts of acceleration when needed. The luggage space behind you is 16.6 cubic feet, which expands to 57 cubic feet after being folded down.
The 1LT Trim offers 17-inch alloy wheels, LED exterior lighting, heated side mirrors, keyless entry/start, remote start, an 8-inch digital driver information display, single-zone automatic climate control, programmable Teen Driver key, and cloth upholstery.

The 2LT trim brings perforated leather seating surfaces, a heated/leather-wrapped steering wheel, a 360-degree camera system, rear parking sensors, and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert.
