Is the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt Worth Your Time and Money?

The Chevrolet Bolt is far from the most intriguing car on the market. It might not even make the list of cars you want to take for a test drive simply because you don’t even think of it. Taking the time to test drive cars and spending the money to buy one brand new can be a big commitment, and you want to know that you are making the right choices, so you aren’t wasting your time, or even worse, your money. So with so many people skipping the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt, is there a reason you shouldn’t?

The simple answer

The simple answer is that you have to know what you’re looking for in order to decide if the Bolt is worth your time. But, there are a lot of positive notes that should put this unpopular Chevy on your list. In fact, one of the cool factors of the car is that they aren’t very popular, meaning you won’t be lost in a sea of Chevrolet Bolts like you might be for some other common commuter cars. For an affordable electric vehicle, it really isn’t a bad option.

A surprisingly good interior

For such a small vehicle, the interior of the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt might surprise you — in a good way. For such a low price, starting around $36,620 for one brand new, it doesn’t offer a lot of comfort or luxury. On the other hand, it does have a lot of modern design features and technology that will improve your driving experience.

A decent daily driver

According to Consumer Reports, the Chevrolet Bolt is a fantastic option if you value a good fuel economy. The website reports that you can get as much as 128mpg on the highway and expect around 110mpg in the city. That’s pretty darn good for a daily driver. That means it is a great option for a new driver, frugal spender, or long-haul commuter.
