America’s nascent electric car industry got a major shot in the arm Tuesday, when Chevrolet revealed that its forthcoming Bolt EV has been rated by the EPA: It will officially be able to drive 238 miles on a single charge.
That number is none too shabby considering that Elon Musk’s Tesla, the current electric market leader, got to 208 miles in its EPA rating for the Model S sedan. (Both cars boast a 60 kw/h battery.) Musk has said that Tesla’s next car, the Model 3, is aiming for at least 215 miles of range.

He also promised that the 2017 Bolt “will start to become available at Chevrolet dealerships later this year.” Read more…More about Bolt Ev, Tesla Motors, Chevrolet, Tech, and Transportation
