No, the Chevrolet Bolt won’t be taking over any drag race anytime soon but the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt design will be dragging the Bolt down.
To make sure the Chevrolet Bolt has a big enough interior and a huge cargo space, Chevrolet decided to sacrifice the aerodynamic of the Bolt. Chevrolet did try to make up for it all by adding a spoiler and underbody paneling. The grille was also designed to have its shutter closed at a certain speed but those can only help with so much.
With the new design, the Chevrolet Bolt will have a drag coefficient of 0.32. The Tesla Model 3 has a drag coefficient of 0.21 while the Prius managed to score a 0.24.
The production for the 200miles electric range model will be starting this October. DO you think sacrificing the aerodynamics of the vehicle for a little more interior space is a risk worth taking?
