Driving an electric vehicle is never something I have really considered doing until the recent drastic increase in gas prices. As a graduate school student, money is tight and being a commuter to school requires a lot more gas and a whole lot more money. Chevrolet’s 2018 Bolt EV is the perfect car for anyone interested in living the electric life by offering an EPA-estimated 238 miles of range per full charge. On chevyevlife.com, I was able to see my potential savings but entering a little information about my current vehicle and driving patterns. I currently drive a 2013 Chevrolet Equinox that gets about 25 MPG and travel about 30 miles per day on 5 days a week. Based on their calculations, I could potentially save up to $452.90 per year (an increase of $764.40 for annual gas savings and a decrease of $11.50 for annual electricity costs). Savings like that are huge for a grad student like me!!

If you still aren’t sold on the idea, there are real drivers you can get expert advice from on the chevyevlife.com website. Actual drivers of the Chevy Bolt EV write posts on topics such as “Maximizing Your Range by Properly Storing Your Items”, “2018 Bolt Earns Top Safety Pick Award”, “The Chevy Bolt Makes Green Driving Fun”, “Use Less Energy in Cold Weather”, etc. There are also tips and tricks on how to charge your Bolt EV in the easiest way possible. With resources like this, it’s easy to fall in love with the Chevrolet Bolt EV and the electric life! So head to your local Chevrolet dealer and see why this vehicle is perfect for you and your economic conscious lifestyle.
