The Chevrolet Bolt has been given a jolt of additional range for the 2020 model year. Previously, this five-door had an EPA-estimated range of 238 miles. With the 2020 variant, that gets increased to 259 miles, according to Chevy.
Among similarly priced competitors, the Bolt now has the longest range. It has an edge on the Nissan Leaf, which offers a maximum range of 226 miles in its new Plus trim. Also, the Kia Niro, which can go 239 miles on a charge. But the real bogey for GM was Hyundai’s Kona Electric, which used to be the top-rated at 258-miles. Yes, that’s now just a single mile less than the 2020 Bolt.2020 Chevrolet Bolt Gets Mileage Boost | Kelley Blue Book
