Chevrolet isn't saying yet exactly what it did to achieve this improvement, but we hear it has to do with new chemistry for the lithium-ion battery pack.
This range improvement puts the Bolt EV ahead of several competitors from Hyundai, Kia, and Tesla.
The 2020 Chevy Bolt EV will go further on a charge than before, with the EPA reporting that the electric hatchback's range goes up to 259 miles, from 238. Chevy isn't saying yet exactly what caused this 8 percent improvement, but we hear that new battery chemistry is at play. Previously, the Bolt EV used a 60.0-kWh lithium-ion battery pack.
