Earlier this week Motor Trend named the 2017 Chevy Bolt electric car as its 2017 Car of the Year and Car and Driver recently added it to its Top 10 list. Now the “electric car for the masses” has been named the Green Car of the Year, by the Green Car Journal at the Los Angeles Auto Show . Green Car Journal editors selected the 2017 Bolt for its 238 mile driving range, stylish design, pleasing driving dynamics, and welcome new technologies. The Bolt beat out other contenders like the BMW 330e iPerformance, Chrysler Pacifica, Kia Optima and Toyota Prius Prime. This is also the second year in the row that Chevy has won the award, since last year the second-generation Chevy Volt won the coveted award. “The 2017 Bolt EV is a game-changing electric vehicle that delivers long range at an affordable price,” said Steve Majoros, Marketing Director, Chevrolet Cars & Crossovers. “We’re excited to have the Bolt EV arrive to select dealer showrooms later this year and honored to have it named as Green Car Journal’s Green Car of the Year®.” Related: 2017 Chevy Bolt gets an EPA-certified 238-mile driving range “From the time modern electric vehicles emerged in the 1990s, limited driving range has presented a core challenge to the commercialization of electric cars affordable to everyday drivers. Bolt overcomes this with its 238-mile battery electric driving range and approachable price, the first production electric car to achieve this milestone,” said Ron Cogan, editor and publisher of Green Car Journal and GreenCarJournal.com. The Bolt will start rolling into showrooms in all 50 states by the end of the year with a staring price at $37,500 before any state or federal tax incentives. + Green Car Journal All images @ Chevy
