4 out of 5 New Chevy Electric Vehicles Offer the Most Bang for the Buck
Four out of five new Chevy electric vehicles deliver the most driving range for the price. Could this be a little like when four out of five dentists recommend toothpaste? Maybe, but considering dentists make more money from bad teeth than good teeth, should we trust that old saying used by toothpaste companies? Maybe not. Regardless of the dental hygiene argument Chevrolet now offers four of the top five models when using driving range and price as the deciding factors among electric vehicles. Let’s learn a little more about these Chevy EVs.
Which EVs offer the most bang for the buck?
U.S. News & World Report offers the EVs with the longest driving range, but we took things a step further. By calculating the base price divided by the driving range, we’ve found the EVs that offer the most bang for the buck, or best value, which are:
- 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EV – 259 Miles – $25,600
- 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV – 400 Miles – $39,900
- 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV – 300 Miles – $30,000
- 2023 Chevrolet Bolt EUV – 247 Miles – $27,200
- 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 6 – 340 Miles – $44,000
- 2023 Hyundai Kona Electric – 258 Miles – $33,550
- 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV – 320 Miles – $47,595
- 2023 Hyundai Ioniq 5 – 303 Miles – $45,500
- 2022 Volkswagen ID.4 – 275 Miles – $42,495
- 2023 Nissan Ariya – 304 Miles – $47,190
A quick glance down the list shows Chevy electric vehicles sitting in the top four spots for value. This means driving a Chevy electric car (Bolt EV), Chevy electric truck (Silverado EV), or Chevy electric SUV (Equinox EV and Bolt EUV) offer the greatest value to consumers.
2023 Chevy Bolt EV
Strangely, the Chevy Bolt EV offers more range and cargo room than its SUV sibling. This Chevy electric car is in its second generation in the market and has become one of the most popular EVs. You’ll find five seats, 200 horsepower, and enough energy to easily handle driving around town and on the highway. The new Federal EV Tax Credit rules allow the Bolt EV to once again qualify, making this already affordable Chevy EV practically a bargain.
2024 Chevy Silverado EV
The new Chevy Silverado EV is the Chevy electric truck poised to take on the Ford F-150 Lightning. This new Silverado brings 10,000 pounds of towing capacity, an impressive driving range, a midgate that opens in the rear of the cabin, and a quick sprint time using the Wide Open Watts feature. It will be interesting to see if electric truck buyers turn to the new Chevy or stick with the Ford.
2024 Chevy Equinox EV
If the Bolt models are too small, but you still want a compact electric crossover, the new Chevy Equinox EV could be the right answer. This new SUV is affordable, offers five-person seating, includes a 17.7-inch central infotainment screen, and comes in the LT and sporty RS trims. Every Equinox EV includes the Chevy Safety Assist suite of features, and top trim levels offer the Chevy Super Cruise semi-autonomous driving feature. This might be the ideal Chevy electric SUV for many drivers.
2023 Chevy Bolt EUV
If a small and practical electric SUV is on the menu, the Bolt EUV can be a good option. This little SUV offers one-pedal driving. This ensures you can handle the ride with the accelerator and capture braking energy through the regenerative braking system. You’ll find a 10.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system and wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay to handle your entertainment needs in this Chevy electric SUV.
