2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV vs. Its Competition

Aaron Cole Aaron Cole Managing Editor

The Bolt EV used to claim the title of the most affordable with the longest range from a mainstream automaker.

Those days are numbered.

The Nissan Leaf boasts just 150 miles of range, but that’ll change in 2019.

The Hyundai Kona EV already rates more than 250 miles by the EPA on a charge, we expect that many interested in the Bolt EV will also consider the Hyundai too.

The Chevy Volt is an unlikely competitor in the same showroom, its gas engine could alleviate any concerns from buyers on the fence about electrics.

The Volkswagen e-Golf is an aged competitor, but it’s the most car-like of the bunch—it looks like a regular Golf, for better or worse.
