As everybody else does, Chevy plans future for its fleet of cars as well. Thanks to that fact we can share info with you what exactly is cooking at their headquarters and what you can expect from the upcoming models.
What was a big headline lately, at least for Chevy, was their first ever fully electric vehicle, the Bolt EV. Why is it so important? Well, the fact is that Bolt EV has pretty much the same price range as the Nissan Leaf, it is an electric car with no gas engine and has an admirable usable range of up to and over 240 miles between charges. With Bolt EV, Chevy managed to make a car that can be used up to a week’s worth of driving on a single charge for the typical consumer, instead of an old-fashioned commuter that has to be regularly charged. Thanks to all of this, Bolt EV was named as a Best Car to Buy 2017 by Green Car Reports.
When performance models are considered, the Camaro and the Corvette entered in a new gen model era with a soul purpose – to boost their look. Besides this, another news is at the top, regarding a new ten-speed automatic transmission which was developed in a partnership between Chevy parent company – General Motors and Ford Motor Company.
Since we already mentioned the GM, we must tell you that their compact Cruze lineup of cars is growing, especially with the addition of a new hatchback and a new turbo diesel sedan (which will come as a 2018 model). With this move, Chevy is hoping to win over the buyers that VW lost when they had to pull they diesel lineup of cars due to that CO2 emission scandal.
