2018 Chevrolet Bolt vs Volt: The Transition Has Begun

By  | 

Electric vehicles are much easier to accept today and this is partly owed to hybrid cars. Hybrids technically soften the impact of EVs by having an electric powertrain with a little aid from gasoline.

This particular setup significantly reduces carbon emission while also curing electric range anxiety. Today, new EVs are capable of travelling more than 200 miles on a single charge and the range is expected to keep on growing.

The latest Bolt started the trend in the affordable EV scene by having 238 miles of driving range and this has tempted Volt owners to make the switch from hybrid to pure electric.

To prove this point, the past two months saw the Bolt recording greater sales than the Volt. If the trend is to continue, GM can completely shift their focus on the Bolt and other electric cars over that of hybrids.

    Reducing carbon emissions – a fool’s mission. And most electrics are powered by coal. And worn out li ion batteriesa are a toxic waste far, far more serious than nuclear wastes, which, in fact,have tons of usable energy remaining, which can be employed for enormous tasks (such as desalination) whenever the govt idiots stop fearing the stuff and trying to bury it.
