Starting with model year 2020, the Bolt EV will offer EPA-estimated 259 miles of range on a full charge, a 21-mile increase over previous model years.

To achieve this notable range increase, Chevrolet’s battery engineering team improved the energy of the cell electrodes by making changes to the cell chemistry. This innovative thinking allowed the team to implement the range increase without needing to change the physical battery pack and the way it is integrated into the vehicle structure.

“The Bolt EV set the benchmark for long-range, affordable electric vehicles, and we’re excited to raise the bar by offering nearly 10 percent more EPA-estimated range for the 2020 model year,” said Tim Grewe, director of Global Battery Cell Engineering and Strategy.
