3. Chevrolet Bolt EV

Chevrolet Bolt EV

Chevrolet Bolt EV is a battery electric subcompact hatchback produced by General Motors under the Chevrolet marque. It was developed and manufactured in partnership with LG Corporation. The Bolt was named the 2017 Motor Trend Car of the Year, the 2017 North American Car of the Year, an Automobile magazine 2017 All-Star, and was listed in Time magazine’s Best 25 Inventions of 2016. The Bolt EV is a tall hatchback design, with a curb weight of 3,580 pounds (1,620 kg). Despite its overall height of nearly 63 inches (1.6 meters), the center of gravity is under 21 inches (53 cm) above the ground, yielding surprisingly stable handling during cornering. The low center of gravity is due to the under-floor mounting of the battery pack. Before the Tesla Model 3 was introduced in July 2017, the Bolt was the only plug-in electric car with a manufacturer’s suggested retail price (MSRP) of less than US$50,000 capable of delivering an EPA-rated range of over 200 miles (320 km). The price of the Chevrolet Bolt EV is approx $ 28,000.
