The new Chevrolet Bolt EV is already here, now buyers can go to Chevrolet’s website to configure one online. There are a few changes brought by the 2019 model, the most notable one is the addition of Shock exterior color, which raises the manufacturer’s suggested retail price by $395.
Two old colors seem to have worn out: Arctic Blue and Orange Burst Metallic, hence dropped by Chevrolet. However, two standard new colors – Slate Gray Metallic and Green Mist Metallic – have been added to refresh the palette. Kinetic Blue Metallic and Cajun Red Tintcoat carry the same $395 price tag as Shock.
Explore deeper into the EV configurator, apparently Tire Fill Alert now comes standard with the 2019 model. The base LT can go with the Driver Confidence II, which means that the package is no longer exclusive to the top-end Premier trim.
With the Driver Confidence II added, you will get features like IntelliBeam, Front Pedestrian Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Lane Keep Assist, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Following Distance Indicator, and Lane Departure Warning.
The 2019 Chevrolet Bolt EV starts at $37,495 for the base model. If you want to jump directly to the range-topping Premier, it will cost you from $41,780. The front-motor subcompact hatchback is built at GM Orion Assembly factory in Michigan, with production is expected to increase in the coming months. Soon enough, there will also be an option to remove the back seat for cargo purposes. We still don’t know though if it will reduce the price.
