The Chevy Bolt EV won Car of the Year at the Detroit Auto Show this week. The Bolt — having already been named Motor Trend Car of the Year — is now so used to getting awards that it probably thinks its first name is Usain. But the similarities between the world’s fastest man and Chevy’s innovative electric sensation end with the name. Usain Bolt has never even run an entire mile at once, while Chevy Bolt can travel 238 miles on a single charge.
That prodigious distance puts the Chevy Bolt in a category of just three electric production vehicles that top 200 miles per charge — the other two are much more expensive Teslas.
