Chevrolet Bolt

Leading off the latest in electric cars is the Chevrolet Bolt, with 238 miles of range and a starting price under $40,000. Read past the headlines and the story behind the Bolt is more than a sound bite. You’re not going to run out of charge if you go for a Sunday drive. Chevrolet has democratized the EV game by delivering range competitive with gas-powered cars, at one-third the cost of Teslas, the only comparable vehicles in range. That’s a big deal. The interior is basic but spacious, and there are plenty of USB hook-ups and a WiFi hotspot inside. Be one of the first on your block to pick one up, and get ready for the conversations with your neighbors. Just don’t confuse the all-electric Bolt with the plug-in hybrid Volt, which is still on sale and a top pick, at that. [119 MPGe combined; 238-mile electric-only range; $37,495]
